OnePlus to open European R&D centre later this year - CEO

Monday 2 February 2015 | 01:29 CET | News
Chinese phonemaker OnePlus plans to accelerate its growth by opening an R&D centre in Europe later this year, CEO Carl Pei posted on Google+ in reaction to news that Sony was planning to cut 1,000 jobs. OnePlus, which is affiliated to Oppo, has put a strategy in place to create a "fashion effect" around the "OnePlus One" brand. Demand is outstripping supply and potential customers need an invitation or to wait for a flash sale, writes Frandroid. OnePlus will use its in-house developed OxygenOS as new ROM to replace one in its phones from CyanogenMod, according to a OnePlus forum
