OnePlus 3 Sales Put on Hold in Europe for a Month; OnePlus 3 Mini Leaked
Highlights
  • OnePlus 3 sales to halt from August 9 to September 12
  • Sales to halt in 23 European countries
  • New leaks suggest a possible mini variant of the phone
OnePlus has received criticism around the world for struggling to keep up with the demand for the phones produced by the company. The company initially used the invite system to dodge the demand issue but decided to do away with it this year with the launch of its smartphone OnePlus 3. As it turns out, the company was not equipped to handle the demand for the OnePlus 3 from Europe.

The company has decided to halt sales of OnePlus 3 temporarily in 23 European countries so that its inventory gets the time to replenish. The list of the countries includes Austria, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.

Company co-founder Carl Pei in a blog post on Wednesday said, "We are working hard to secure more stock and fire up more production lines so that we can fulfill our goal of putting premium products into the hands of as many people as possible."

The sales will be halted from August 9 to September 12 as per the blog post.

Interestingly, there is a new phone that has surfaced on benchmark site GFXBench that has almost similar specs to OnePlus 3 apart from the screen size, which is mentioned to be 4.6-inch in this case, reports Phone Arena, which also speculates the smartphone may be called the OnePlus 3 Mini.

The benchmark listing on GFXBench shows a smartphone with a full-HD resolution (1080x1920 pixels), and powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC and the Adreno 530 GPU. The phone also features 6GB of RAM and has inbuilt storage of 64GB.

Although there is no proof that the phone has anything to do with OnePlus, the similarity in specifications might suggest a mini variant of company's highly-successful smartphone OnePlus 3.
