OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirms he has left the company

While everyone was talking about the latest iPhone 12 series as well as the OnePlus 8T, there was also a story which made the rounds regarding OnePlus. With them, the company is in capable hands. The things we've accomplished and learned, I can't begin to imagine a more rewarding adventure.

After rumours of Carl Pei living OnePlus surfaced earlier this week, the OnePlus co-founder has confirmed that he has left the Chinese smartphone maker.

The co-founder of a young and vibrant company, Carl Pei has made a decision to part ways from his successful startup (or a division of a larger conglomerate BBK Electronics). But OnePlus grew to become a household name in the years to come and now it holds a prominent place in the premium smartphone segment around the world. He joined OnePlus in 2012, and together with other co-founder and current CEO Pete Lau, he helped transform the company from a budding smartphone brand with deep roots in software customization to a globally recognized brand that sells millions of well-received budget flagship phones each year. Since then, the company has never looked back and has launched back-to-back successes. We've seen some of the false steps along the way; right through to the major achievements in recent times. Also, he said the cliche lines of "spending time with the family and friends" but we know it is important since he was committed to OnePlus all the time these last years.

TechCrunch reported earlier this week that Pei was leaving the company to start a new venture. He also announced that he will be taking some time off after the move.

Indeed Carl has given his all to the company, which allowed OnePlus to attain global fame. But we saw ways to make things better and we dreamed of making things happen. The company, not-so-subtly backed by BBK and Oppo, started out in relative obscurity and quickly grew on the backs of enthusiast-focused devices with affordable prices and top-of-the-line specs.
