OnePlus launched its newest flagship telephones, the OnePlus eight and OnePlus eight Pro, lower than two weeks in the past, however the Chinese cellphone maker is now shedding workers in regional places of work all through Europe, in accordance with a report from Engadget.
It doesn’t seem that the layoffs are coronavirus-related; quite, OnePlus seems to be dramatically downsizing places of work in UK, France and Germany, with reductions in headcount as excessive as 80 p.c for some places of work. In some places of work, there are simply three workers, the report says.
Engadget stories that places of work in Denmark, Finland, and the Netherlands weren’t affected, as OnePlus sees these areas as extra promising development markets. As such, Helsinki is now going to be the brand new European HQ for OnePlus, the report states, with the prior operation being primarily based in London.
This could have been a very long time coming; OnePlus fashions within the UK solely work on one provider, the worldwide supplier Three, and the corporate hasn’t had strategic relationships with different carriers that function within the UK for fairly a while.
“Europe is a very important market for us and has been since the beginning of OnePlus,” an organization spokesperson advised Engadget. “We’re doing some strategic restructuring in Europe, and in fact are even hiring in the region.”
