Carl Pei announced a decision to leave OnePlus, a smartphone OEM he helped set up, earlier in 2020. Now, he has reportedly attracted US$7 million in capital for his new business from various private investors. It is also apparently now hiring for positions in two cities.

Carl Pei has amassed a round of investment to the tune of US$7 million for his first post-OnePlus start-up. This capital has reportedly come from sources such as Casey Neistat; Paddy Cosgrave (the Web Summit founder); Kevin Lin (the Twitch co-founder); Liam Casey (PCH's CEO) and Tony Fadell (Future Shape).

Then again, Pei has yet to reveal the nature of this new company, although it is said that it will focus on audio hardware of some kind. The ex-OnePlus executive has also indicated that it is taking applications for various positions in London (the UK) and Bangalore (India).

They are for roles such as software designers, as well as sales and marketing managers and graphic designers. Pei has said he will reveal more details on the products these employees will be working on in early 2021. Given that he was consistently linked to OnePlus' public image as a community-immersed device OEM, it will be interesting to see if this translates to his new firm as well.
