OnePlus enters 2020 more successful than ever—but it can't rest on its laurels

As 2019 ends and we enter a new decade, I felt the story of OnePlus deserved a bit more examination. In an email interview with CMO Kyle Kiang, I probed the history of a company that is often as shocking in its successes as it is in its marketing misfires. As it crests its sixth year as a smartphone vendor, it's more competitive than ever, coming a long way from the days when it could barely manage to build enough $349 OnePlus Ones using a tightly controlled and very annoying invitation system.

The company has also introduced a redesigned remote controller with a dedicated button for the new app.

With smartphone growth slowly declining, OnePlus has decided on a new market to disrupt: television sets. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already revealed that he has a TV in the making, and further information has now leaked that points to multiple screen sizes.
