Carl Pei the current CEO of Chinese manufacturer OnePlus, has sent a polite letter to Samsung asking for an internship.
In the letter from OnePlus to Samsung, Carl Pei discusses how he wants to improve the company. His issue has to do with manufacturing and believes with the help of Samsung, he can turn the company around and benefit each other. As most of you know, OnePlus is experiencing difficulty producing enough handsets to reach the high amount of demand. Carl Pei says it’s mostly due to production problems and shipping delays. The company believes Samsung can help and wants to send Pei to Samsung in return of letting an executive from Samsung attend their company’s headquarters. Carl Pei goes on to congratulate Samsung for all the hard work the company has done, in addition to the success it has achieved over the years. Pei strongly “admires their operations” and believes no one company can dominate a category and that there is still space for competition in the market as well as room to learn from each other.
It sounds like the real deal and OnePlus believes the two can better the lives of consumers if they work together. Perhaps the company wants help marketing its rumored upcoming OnePlus X handset. What do you think? Will this ever happen?
