Indian OnePlus 3T production to become domestic in 2017
After two weeks of pre-orders, the OnePlus 3T has struggled to make a dent in India. The demand for this souped-up version of the OnePlus 3 has piled on some some 200,000 registrations, all of them worth a cool Rs. 29,999 ($442) to the company.
But General Manager of OnePlus India Vikas Agarwal told Reuters that the company has been losing up to 30 percent of potential sales this year from stock depletion.
“The focus is on trying our best to meet the demand,” Agarwal said.
The plan? Get production ramped up in the country with partner manufacturers by early next year. That may include Foxconn, which helped OnePlus put out the OnePlus X last year.
India’s third-largest premium mobile brand will continue to sell only on Amazon India, but will build an “experience center” in Bengaluru and expand its footprint on device servicing.
