"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me"
. This saying fully suits OnePlus, the maker of the the much-hyped OnePlus One
, which has been delayed once again. Just 10 days ago, the so-called "flagship killer" got delayed in the last minute
so that an OpenSSL bug could be fixed
. It seems, however, that those European users who have received invitations for the smartphone will have to experience yet another delay.
Because OnePlus decided to alter the mandatory CE certification logo that has to grace any product that is being sold in the EU. Apparently, OnePlus modified the font of said logo so that it corresponds to the inscriptions on the back cover of the smartphone. Of course, this is illegal in the EU, so the first batch of device got held at the customs and promptly returned to the manufacturer. In order to be eligible for import, the back covers of the OnePlus One will have to be restyled and display a correct, untouched version of the CE logo.
According to a representative of OnePlus, it would take it up to two weeks to alter the design of the back cover. The devices in question will be only shipped after this prerequisite has been met, provided that OnePlus does not surprise its European fans with yet another unfortunate delay.
