The OnePlus 3 has been more popular than the smartphone manufacturer imagined, it seems. As a result, OnePlus has decided to pause sales of its flagship handset for a month in 24 countries, including Ireland.
Pausing sales for a month will allow OnePlus to replenish stock of the handset, it says. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei wrote, "We were confident in the OnePlus 3 when it launched, but sales in mainland Europe have been way better than what we expected."
"Therefore, we've decided to temporarily pause sales in some countries in order to give inventory time to replenish."
Sales are to be paused from August 9 until September 12. If you live in Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, or Hong Kong, you won't be able to purchase a OnePlus 3 until after this window.
The UK and US are unaffected by this decision.
