Hugo Barra Mentioned in Google+, “After nearly 5½ years at Google and almost 3 years as a member of the Android team — the most amazing group of people I’ve ever worked with in my life — I have decided to start a new career chapter.”

Now Who going to take the lead for Android.

AllThingsD is reporting that Barra is actually leaving because of a romantic situation gone sour within the Google walls. He reportedly was dating a fellow Googler who now is dating Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Brin and his wife recently confirmed that they are living apart. The move to Xiaomi, if true, gives a big advantage to the growing Chinese smartphone company. The company was founded in 2010, sold its first smartphone the next year, and has continued to do well in the market, selling 7.19 million phones last year.
