OnePlus 3 Sales Suspended in Europe and HK due to High Demand
From August 9th until September 12th
Sales of the OnePlus 3 will be suspended throughout Europe and in Hong Kong for a month beginning next week as the company said it needs “to give inventory time to replenish.” OnePlus says sales of its flagship device will be suspended from August 9th until September 12th in the following European countries; Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain.
The controversial move is reportedly being made in order to “give inventory time to replenish”, since OnePlus has seen sales in mainland Europe being way better than what it envisioned at the get-go. Hence, not many units are still available for the continent, and shipping times have become worse and worse over the past few weeks.
Until the launch of the OnePlus 3, the company had an invite system in place to keep a control on the amount of devices being ordered. This system was scrapped at the launch of the latest flagship, due to which the company seems to be struggling with high demand.
