(Update: OnePlus responds) OnePlus X stock status situation creating some serious confusion
Here’s what is currently known: the device is listed as out of stock on the OEM’s web stores around the world and cannot be ordered. In addition, the following e-mail is being sent to those who ordered it just recently:
As stated in the above e-mail, the device is out of stock and said supply will not be replenished. At the very least the company is offering a $10 store credit for use on another product, including the OnePlus 3.
However, one of the users on OnePlus’ official forum, Aazkyn, claims to have contacted the company directly and been provided with this response:
Thank you for reaching out. Yes, the OnePlus X will still be restocked since our management hasn’t announced yet that it would be phased-out Adam. So rest assured it will still get back on stock. And about the restocking, I do apologize but we cannot give any estimate to when it will happen. But please do stay tune to our webstore to buy right away when it get back on stock.
While it’s difficult to say what the absolute final word is here, assuming the above is accurate then the phone will indeed be available again in the future. Given that the X is not even a year old yet, and the company itself didn’t make any mention of discontinuation, it would seem logical that it will be sold for a longer duration of time. Plus, it’s worth noting that OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already gone on record to indicate there won’t be a OnePlus X successor.
Android Authority has reached out to OnePlus for further clarification on these matters. We’ll be sure to update this post as we learn more.
