In a related development, OnePlus' co-founder Carl Pei has apologised to fans for the delay in OnePlus 2 invites distribution on his official blog page.
The company's failure to bridge the gap between demand and supply has made him think what he would have done differently to address production constraint. With no answer coming to his mind, Carl Pei, to everyone's surprise has openly asked Samsung to grant him an internship in their company, so that he could learn some tricks on managing the smartphone supply chain.
Pei is also willing to host Samsung's executive in OnePlus and show around works of the company. He said both OnePlus and Samsung can benefit greatly from this exchange program.
Samsung is yet to respond to Carl Pei request. Stay tuned for more updates.
