In the spirit of transparency and honesty, OnePlus has taken to its forums to announce that the first shipment of OnePlus 2 devices for North American markets — US and Canada — will lag behind Europe by 2-3 weeks.
The delay comes from production scheduling conflicts, but according to OnePlus, it won’t affect sales:
The production of the OnePlus 2 is in full swing and we’re excited to get the OnePlus 2 in your hands. However we do want to tell our users in North America that due to production schedules, shipping to the States and Canada will commence 2-3 weeks after shipments to Europe.
But don’t worry, this won’t affect our selling date. You can still use your invite codes to purchase the OnePlus 2 at oneplus.net starting August 11.OnePlus 2 Shipments DelayedOnePlus
