OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei revealed the reasons for leaving the company

Those emails then suggested that Carl Pei, who was very much in charge of the OnePlus Nord line-up, is no longer in that position.

The story we are talking about is regarding the departure of OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei from his own company.

"I grew up spending tremendous amounts of time on the internet, building products and communities". Because at the end of the day, we all know that Carl was instrumental in bringing OnePlus to where it is now and if they don't keep on doing the same things, they might have a decline in the future. At more reasonable prices. 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. And with the new Nord product line, this success will continue into new market segments. He shared that he joined the company when he was 24 years old and he had learned a lot including presenting a product on stage and to manage a team. The journey has been real. And the team. The fantastic people that I've been fortunate to fight side by side with. There is little doubt that OnePlus has made an impact on the market and is now considered by many to be a contender in a tight market. However, this would not have been a good look for the company and their reputation in general so they wanted the story to be hidden for the time being. But we have seen that companies have survived and even made growth after their founders have left too.

Back in 2013, OnePlus was a company that knew how to build hype and gather attention with its first smartphone. The trust, mentorship, and camaraderie will never be forgotten.

In his farewell message, Carl thanked Pete Lau for giving him the opportunity despite not having a college degree.

"I've never regretted trusting my gut feeling, and this time it's no different". I'm looking forward to taking some time off to decompress and catch up with my family and friends. He said, " These past years, OnePlus has been my singular focus, and everything else has had to take a backseat. "And then follow my heart on to what's next", he said. OnePlus also has a pocket friendly OnePlus Nord smartphone that recently got a new Gray Ash colour variant.
