OnePlus has been having problems with keeping up with the demand of their device so to meet the already booked shipment, the company decided to stop selling more units until the old schedules are done and good.
CEO Carl Pei wrote in a forum that sales will slightly stop 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.
