Dear OnePlus, what's going on with the OP6 in Australia?

    Hello Friends,
    Before the release of the OP6, I posted this question on one of the OP6 information posts by Pete.

    Sadly, this did not receive a reply.
    The OP6 is not available for purchase from the Australian store at the time of writing.
    However, since the recent release of the OP6 I have been following Australian discussion boards and blog posts regarding the phone.

    Australian enthusiasts have noticed a few changes to the Australian version of the website which may hint at the release of the OP6 in Australia.

    For example, previously visiting the Australian store would return this message:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20180504125047/https://www.oneplus.com/au/
    Which says "We're putting sales for this region on hold".

    However, visiting the Australian store at the time of writing shows this:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20180517151305/https://www.oneplus.com/au

    As you can see, the message has changed, although still referring to the OnePlus5 it now states "Are you ready Australia?".

    To add to this, the OnePlus6 is now listed under the phones section of the Australian store (where the 5T was not when it was released as it did not receive an official release for Australia).

    However, currently clicking on this leads to a 404 page.
    whereas the stores in the other regions all have the OnePlus6 on display for sale.

    Hence the confusion with the Australian region as many OnePlus fans in Australia have expressed.
    What is happening with the OP6 in Australia? Is there a delay till release? If so how long? (As when the OP5 was released in Australia with a delay, the OP 5T was right around the corner).

    Thank you.
    Mark.

    OnePlus might be hinting they will do another "soft launch" just before the Oneplus 6t comes out. (similar to the 5t case). Or they will soon make Australia an offical release country (I hope)
    I got the OnePlus 5 as soon as the soft launch is opened and I can't wait to get my hands on the Oneplus 6!

    It's a disgrace. I receive all the One plus notifications, invites, you name it, but as soon as I engage.. "404" you are an Australian, go away. All the support over the years for OP and its products, then treated like shit.
    Worse than Apple for client treatment..? Maybe..

    I ordered my Oneplus 5T from the USA which was freight forwarded...

    I'd like to order my 6T and 7T in Australia.. Its not too much to ask.

    At least there's hope :')

    Those other pages about the OnePlus 5 have been there since the end of last year I think though.

    Prepare for having your post deleted.:rolleyes: Self promotion isn't allowed on the forums even for voucher codes. Put the link in your signature if you want to make it available for people to use.

    It seems like they're planning on repeating their strategy of dumping off their unsold OP6 stock on them right before the 6t launch. Hopefully they don't drop them like a sack of potatoes afterwards again.

    Steven clearly said....
    "We're putting sales for this region on hold until we're sure our Aussie fans can get the best OnePlus experience."

    Until Oneplus makes another announcement regarding AUS. We can only assume that their lastest statement still stands.

    hey Mark,

    regarding your question, sorry I don't have any good news to share. last year I went to beautiful Australia and met some very good friends there. personally, I hope that the company can open up the Australian market and introduce our products to our Aussie friends. I really hope we can bring you good news in the near future.
