It is certainly not easy to make it big in the tech industry in a short span of time. However, tech is also a sector that sees many overnight successes. OnePlus is one of them, which started off in 2014 and rose through the ranks to become a global smartphone brand. For those unaware, the OnePlus team was founded by Pete Lau and Carl Pei with the latter also serving as the face of the company. Now, Pei has announced that he is taking his leave from OnePlus.
Pei says he’s trusting his “gut feeling”
There were rumours suggesting that Carl Pei is leaving OnePlus and it has finally been confirmed. Previous rumours also suggested that Pei is quitting the company due to a power struggle between him and the co-founder Pete Lau. However, it seems like Pei is trusting his “gut feeling” to take time off. Pei writes in a blog post, “These past years, OnePlus has been my singular focus, and everything else has had to take a backseat. I’m looking forward to taking some time off to decompress and catch up with my family and friends. And then follow my heart on to what’s next.”
