OPINION: How OnePlus is stepping up into the big league with the OnePlus 8 series

Last year, we asked Pete Lau, the founder and CEO of OnePlus, why his phones did not yet have wireless charging, almost a standard for a flagship smartphone. A thoughtful second later, he gave a sort of smirk and said, in Chinese, that the tech was not yet good for him. The convenience of wireless charging was not worth it, if it took the user double the time to charge the phone. That is exactly the kind of thinking that keeps OnePlus one step ahead of the race in the game it is in. And it should be a tough place, given that it is competing with the likes of Apple and Samsung.
