Following countless reports earlier this week, OnePlus has officially confirmed the departure of its co-founder Carl Peis in a new post online.
After years of building the OnePlus brand to the relative popularity and success it enjoys today, Pei unexpectedly left the company in recent months. Why? Unfortunately, Pei does not provide a clear explanation.
After almost seven years at OnePlus, I have made the difficult decision to say goodbye.
I grew up spending huge amounts of time on the Internet, building products and communities. Seeing that ideas in one’s mind could become reality and affect people̵7;s lives gave me lots of joy and I knew early on that this was the way for me.
According to various reports, Carl Pei and Pete Lau, the founders of OnePlus, did not get along well, and it seems that something related to OnePlus Nord pushed things over the edge.
In any case, it’s hard not to be impressed with what Pei did in his time at OnePlus. The company, not so subtly backed by BBK and Oppo, started in relative obscurity and quickly grew on the backs of enthusiast-focused devices with affordable prices and top-of-the-line specifications. In the last few years, prices have risen far, but the phones have also gotten better. For example, the OnePlus 8 Pro from earlier this year finally nailed the flagship experience.
Fireplace legacy on OnePlus will not be quickly forgotten by longtime fans of the company and it will be interesting to see what comes next for him.
I have never regretted having confidence in my gut feeling, and this time it is no different. In recent years, OnePlus has been my unequivocal focus, and everything else has had to take a back seat. I look forward to taking some time to decompress and catch up with my family and friends. And then follow my heart on to what’s next.
