In the heightened anticipation of the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus shut off sales of the OnePlus 3. It launched the new device the day after. Just as soon as that happened, eBay listings popped up for the OnePlus 3 with prices above the $399 it was offered at — the phone was already being treated as a legacy item.

Even as OnePlus has assured customers of the older device’s continued sales today, those marketplace moochers had good reason to. According to a statement to MobileSyrup, the company has confirmed that OnePlus 3 distribution will ending for North America and Europe.

“However, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be on the same software update schedule going forward,” the statement reads, “with both devices receiving Android N simultaneously by the end of the year.”

So, we now know that the OnePlus 3 is, in fact, a zombie phone in some regions and not in others. If you’re really desperate for a OnePlus 3 after its stock finally depletes in the West, you may have to cross a few mountains and oceans. Or, you could just swallow the $40 difference and get a OnePlus 3T.
