When OnePlus 2 was launched amidst much hype and celebration, most of us foresaw yet another Chinese device taking on premium smartphones made in the west. However, things seem to have gone south recently.
There has been considerable delay in deliveries of the new device in the recent past which hasn't gone down well with OnePlus fans. This has led Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, to issue an apology.
“To our fans, sorry. We were equally excited when we saw your excitement around the OnePlus 2. We know how it feels waiting and waiting for something you really want, while being given ETAs that go unfulfilled. We appreciate the trust and support that you have given to a relatively small and unknown company like OnePlus.”
“We know that you are rooting for us, and want nothing more than to see us succeed. Therefore, it feels extra terrible to let you down this time around, again,” he added.
OnePlus 2 deliveries are almost a month late already and it seems the company hasn't come up with any new plans to expedite them. However, sources suggest that the company plans to make the device available on its online store for exactly one hour in October to help those who have to wait endlessly for invitations.
The OnePlus 2 is a 5.5 inch phone with a 1080p display and features a fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery.
