You may have seen some recent stories claiming the OnePlus 3 launch is going down on April 7. That’s unfortunately not happening. OnePlus has confirmed to Android Authority that the April 7 event is not a launch for the 2017 flagship killer (or whatever hyperbolic title the new phone will eventually get).

So what is happening on April 7? A OnePlus spokesman told us that “the April 7 event is focused on the China market. We will not be launching our next device then.” While we couldn’t get any further details on the official OnePlus 3 release date or the specs currently being bandied about, we were told that “the only thing we can confirm is that [it] will be an awesome product”. Classic OnePlus.
The April 7 event is focused on the China market. We will not be launching our next device then.
While we’re not sure what’s in store for the Chinese market early next month, at least we know it is not the OnePlus 3. As you may recall, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei went on record not that long ago saying the OnePlus 3 will arrive toward the end of Q2, 2016 and will feature “a new design”. So we’ll all just have to hold on another couple of months longer.
