OnePlus Completes Two Years, Announces the Champagne Edition OnePlus X
In his blog, Carl Pei, before announcing the Champagne OnePlus X wrote – “Growing as fast as we have in two years, we have a lot of areas we need to improve. As we enter our third year, a lot of our shortcomings become inexcusable. In 2016, there is no excuse for any part of OnePlus to not live up to, if not exceed, industry standards. If OnePlus in the past two years was the naughty kid that came and stirred the smartphone industry pot, I hope that 2016 will be the year where people see this kid developing and maturing into a more responsible member of the community.
However, we will keep being unapologetic ally OnePlus. In our third year, we hope to continue to deliver excitement and surprise, while also becoming a company our fans can be even prouder of standing behind. It’s a defining year for us. So to kick things off, we’ve got some exciting news for you.” Check the entire blog here.
