OnePlus official statement suggests the OnePlus 3T could be discontinued soon (Confirmed)


UPDATE: We've just been informed that OnePlus 3T will be out of stock in the UK and the rest of Europe from June 1st.

OnePlus is readying its new flagships smartphones, the OnePlus 5, but at the same time plans to cut short the support for some of its older handsets. Already the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X aren't receiving enough attention from the Chinese company, so it's no surprise that much newer devices will be getting the same treatment.

OnePlus recently published a rather confusing message on its official forum, informing fans that they have one more chance to grab the current flagship, OnePlus 3T.


Although the OnePlus 3T could be discontinued, we're still expecting the Android OEM to continue to support the phone with timely updates, just like it did until now. The same goes for the OnePlus 3, which is slightly older than the current flagship.

So, since this is the last call to purchase the OnePlus 3T, will you be picking one up or you'll be waiting for the company's new smartphone coming later this summer?

3T is a great phone. Probably best android I've used. The stocklike experience with nice customization options helped a lot imo. Ended up a little too big for me though.

My only hope is that they support this thing for Android O (Oreo, come on) and P(Pixie Stick?) 2 years of support should not be a question for flagship phones (Yes I know it's technically a "mid-ranger" but it's treated as a flagship besides the price).

Lol, oneplus is in no way, shape, spec or form a midranger. Infact, i'd wager that it'll be the best flagship out till the ip8, pixel and the note 8 comes out tbh..

Even if it doesn't get android P, its fully bootloader unlocked, so custom Android P ROMs will be out in no time

They should give their devices alot more updates they should give 3-4 years minimum. Number 1 they dont sell as much devices as Apple or Samsung and with different configurations. Number 2 they dont really have alot of models out there I can pretty much count them on 1 hand. Yes I get they a small team but they have a small amount of devices out there so shouldn't be a issue.

Yeah, but I like just pressing "download update" instead of bootloader options, call me lazy ha

Oneplus 3t is not a midranger. Please correct yourself.

That's just pure idiocy especially for consumers, not everyone buys this years flagships some people wait for last years to drop in price. I mean people are buying S7's and Iphone 6's to this day. Now OP5 is out I would have expected them to sell their OP3 and OP3T for less than £300 but instead they take them off the market? Basically if anyone held out for the OP3 and OP3T they are stuffed they HAVE to get the OP5 if they a fan of One Plus and its updates/UI/Speed.

Oneplus customers aren't the same as GS7/iPhone 6 customers. Call me stupid, but Oneplus usually buy the later versions than searching for a One on Ebay. Plus iPhone 6 is still getting updates to this day, so why not a 3T for the next two years?

You should realise Oneplus is fairly new and might have limited resources to continue outsourcing and/or selling the 3T. Therefore it needs to focus its resources on the new flagship instead. Please research before being a rage striker.

Yes they new and have limited resources compared to bigger companies out there but then having less devices out there more than makes it fair. I dont need to research anything but thanks for the helpful advice :D

It doesn't have 'enough' resources, even for the handful of devices it designed. But that isn't necessarily a reason. I only said it seems to the culprit.

They are starting to get their act together. The OnePlus One, had a TON of issues, not to mention that stupid invite thingy. The OnePlus 2, well, the 810 battery killed it. The OnePlus X? small screen. The 3 and 3T...they are starting to get their act together. Now, if they would get their hardware problem support up to speed, and KEEP THE PRICE DOWN, they'll be ok. Leaks report the 5 will be upwards of $650. Yes, less than the S8/Iphone 8, but still way to high in my book. OnePlus had a revolutionary goal of a good product, at an affordable price, but, like Huawei, they are increasing the price to bump up the profit margin.

What a marketing trick. OnePlus is full of those. Needing a invitation to order their phone etc.
