OnePlus has finally made its merger with Oppo public. This development comes after a long time of closely working with the Chinese company.
OnePlus Co-Founder & CEO Pete Lau said the OnePlus will be merged with Oppo as part of its efforts to reach more people.
However, the executive said that even after the merger, both OnePlus and Oppo will operate as separate brands. OnePlus made the announcement just days after launching the affordable smartphone NordCE in India and other markets.
The CEO said in a forum post that Oppo has merged to provide “even better products” for OnePlus customers. OnePlus and Oppo are both owned by BBK Electronics of China. Along with them, there are also brands like Vivo, Real Me.
All of these companies have been sharing resources internally since their inception. OnePlus was also co-founded by Lau and his fellow Carl Pei who both worked at Oppo before establishing the new brand in December 2013.
