Here’s a familiar story. Following the botched launch of the OnePlus One, OnePlus have taken to their blog to admit that they’ve messed up once again with the launch of their second flagship device, the OnePlus 2.
OnePlus may be the manufacturer of a “flagship killer”, but it’s not really a killer if it’s not actually in anyone’s hands. That’s what’s happened once again as OnePlus struggles to keep up with demand of their new device.
After delaying the phone’s arrival in the US and Canada, co-founder Carl Pei has admitted in a forum post that they’ve only just started shipping the device in “meaningful quantities” this week – a month later than expected.
“We messed up,” Pei writes in a forum post. “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.”
Before the launch of the OnePlus 2, OnePlus assured everyone that they’d have more inventory for the launch of the new device and wouldn’t fall into the same problems they had with the One.
With over two million invites, it seems if you’re waiting for your own OnePlus 2, you may have a long one…
