OnePlus co-founder leaves the company and will found another

 OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei is reportedly leaving the company after 7 years  to start something new

Tomorrow will be one of the most important days of the year for OnePlus as the OnePlus 8T will be announced, the new mobile that in a few weeks we can buy in Spain. However, the company is now news for a very different reason: one of its founders leaves the company.

Carl Pei leaves OnePlus after 7 years

For those who didn’t know, Carl Pei is with Pete Lau the entrepreneurial couple he founded at China OnePlus in 2013. Both have been distributed the image role of the company although in recent years it was Pei who had the most deal with the press and media.

In fact, he was one of those responsible for strategies as praised and criticized as the invitation system needed to buy an OnePlus in the first years of the firm’s existence.

According to Techcrunch, the entrepreneur would have decided to leave the firm although there is not yet an official statement.

Although there have been rumours that he could sign for Samsung (the miso joked about it a few years ago), apparently the executive intends to form another company, although we still don’t know what approach.

We assume it will be a tech startup, but it doesn’t seem easy to set up a new mobile manufacturer from scratch, as it did seven years ago.

Waiting for official confirmation

According to various media outlets, images have been leaked from a memorandum of our OnePlus organizational structure in which Pei himself does not appear.

This information has not been confirmed by the company although it has been confirmed by nearby sources. They will most likely wait a while since the introduction of the OnePlus 8T. It doesn’t seem like a good marketing strategy to take the lead off your new product.
