OnePlus 3 sales stoppage called to bring down shipment times

OnePlus has once again found itself in a bind regarding its inventories. This comes as the startup continues to sell the OnePlus 3 smartphone without an invitation queue.

CEO Carl Pei wrote in a forum post that the company will have to stop sales of the OnePlus 3 in 25 territories. They are mostly in Europe, where demand has been even higher than expected for OnePlus’s “fastest selling device we’ve ever made.”

Shipment dates for all customers have been lengthening to as far as two weeks from purchase since sales began in June. Meantime, sales of the OnePlus 3 in China have only just begun and the company may want to bolster a relatively underserved crowd. Apple may have possibly faced a similar situation with its iPhone SE as posted shipment dates were more than a week from purchase for an extended period.

The stoppage will occur from August 9 to September 12 for customers in:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Croatia
  • Cyprus
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
  • France
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Slovakia
  • Slovenia
  • Spain
  • Hong Kong

Those who cannot purchase the phone before the stoppage begins can sign up for a notification on when sales resume.

One forum reacted to the news by saying “Bring back invites !!”
