Priced under $500 doesn't mean $499. The OnePlus One will definitely be available for under $400. #NeverSettle  +OnePlus

Hi Peter, 
If possible, I would like to have an invite or know the best way to obtain a invite. This phone sounds nice and is a good deal. If I can get one and I like it. I will encourage my friends and family to "Never Settle".

Cheers,
静

Never Settle

Today is a special day for me, because today my startup +OnePlus is born.

OnePlus is the realization of my long-standing dream to create a global and innovative company. It is also an opportunity for a group of young people to make their mark on the world. I hope for it to eventually become a playground for tech lovers around the globe.

What kind of a company will OnePlus be? Since leaving +OPPO I’ve spoken with many friends and influencers in the mobile and internet industries. Many visions and opinions were bounced around but we kept returning to one central idea: make the best possible product for users worldwide.

The desire to pursue this goal has been growing inside me since my days leading the Blu-ray division at OPPO. I remember how proud I felt at CES when our OPPO Blu-ray players were spoken of with awe and admiration.

Looking at the smartphone market right now, I see a lot of wannabes but few truly outstanding products fit for the demanding consumer. That's what I want to address with OnePlus.

It's a hard road ahead as I transition from my role as an employee to that of entrepreneur and launch a company from scratch. There will be many difficulties to overcome. I draw my strength and resolve from the success of OPPO's Blu-ray players and the overwhelmingly positive feedback for the OPPO Find 5.

I would like to thank OPPO and Tony for their support. I have spent my entire career thus far with this noble and forward-thinking company. Not every product engineer gets access to such a great platform and opportunity, and for that I will remain eternally grateful to OPPO.

A new year, a new beginning. Expect to hear great things from us in 2014.

I only heard recently of your company, but what you have on offering is amazing. I am patiently awaiting an invite as I feel it is more than worth the wait!

I've owned a few external battery packs, but they are never full when I need them. When I finally decide to charge them, I find it takes too long. I've not yet found anything that suits me. Who else feels this way?

I can't judge his reasons, because; I do not know what it is like for him to do what he does, but I feel that the style he is going for could use some support; both in the design and the software. Design means nothing if the software can't keep up.

Today is my last day at OPPO.

Over the course of my career, I have worked as a hardware engineer, eventually became the director of the Blu-Ray division and finally led our marketing team through many challenges in our pursuit of creating a great mobile brand. There are a lot of memories I will cherish from my time at OPPO.

OPPO has always and will continue to create exquisite products. Incredible build quality and beautiful design are core strengths of OPPO, and ones that are now deeply integrated in my blood from fifteen years of working here.

I would like to thank my colleagues who have fought side by side with me. I'd also like to extend my thanks to Tony, and friends from all over the world, for their enduring support over the years! #OPPO

I am in South Africa and I'm really sad that we've been shut out of experiencing this flagship killer, and not to mention the wonderful price tag that this phone has, can you please make a plan Pete.

When I met +Steve Kondik and +Koushik Dutta a few weeks ago, they shared their plans for the future of +Cyanogen Inc. with me. I have great faith in their product and their team, and look forward to what’s coming.
 
What's next?

A few weeks ago, +Koushik Dutta and I were able to meet with +Pete Lau in Shenzhen and we began discussing our vision for a phone that would fuse truly amazing software with the highest quality hardware available. Together, we’re setting out to create that product. Stay tuned.
