The OnePlus 3 went on sale not too long ago, and thankfully, it wasn’t hidden behind an invitation system. While OnePlus made the necessary steps to make sure they could sell as many OnePlus 3 units as possible, it appears demand has outstripped stock, at least in Europe and Hong Kong.
OnePlus says the OnePlus 3 has been the fastest-selling device the company has ever sold, and while they had prepared, the shipping dates for purchases made from their website began to slip further and further back. As a result, OnePlus has made the decision to suspend sales in a number of different countries across Europe, as well as in Hong Kong, for a limited time.
The sales pause will begin on August 9 at 0:00 (CEST) and last until September 12 at 23:59 (CEST). In Europe, the pause will go into effect in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. And as mentioned earlier, sales in Hong Kong will be suspending during the same stretch.
OnePlus says that they are working on filling out stock so they can deliver handsets, but it sounds like this sales suspension was something they had to do. It’s also worth noting that this doesn’t impact sales that have already happened or for those who buy the OnePlus 3 before August 9. OnePlus says the delivery date will remain in tact.
