    We owe you all, our Malaysian fans, an apology. We've let you down in several ways, and it's time to own up and explain how we will do better. The OnePlus team - ambitious as we may be - is still very inexperienced and will inevitably run into difficulties on this journey. Our strength has always been the community, and one of the things that went wrong was that we tried, to some extent, to do this for the community rather than with it. We were so eager to get you the phone that we lost track of what matters the most - our users.

    So, here's a quick rundown of what went wrong and how we will adapt.
    • We promised a launch date that we were unable to deliver on. We thought we had a solution that worked and were so happy to show you guys that we didn't make sure all the processes were perfect. To avoid this happening again, this post will not have a promised launch date. However, if you read on, we'll shed some light on that too.
    • When we couldn't make the launch, we didn't engage enough with our fans. We should have made more clear from the start that there were difficulties and what we were looking to do about them. Thus, this post is an attempt at providing better insight into what's going to happen.
    • We acted like we weren't listening, by not addressing your questions, and by not tailoring our social media messaging to your community. To help with this, we are looking to hire a community manager for Malaysia.
    Now, what's next? Like I said, there won't be a hard launch date in this post. However, I want you all to know that we are focusing heavily on making this happen. Me and @Carl were in KL just yesterday meeting with potential partners and sorting out issues throughout the supply chain. And, to do it right this time, you'll get a hard launch date as soon as I get one.

    Never settle.

    @Mike Thank you for the clarification! At least we are able to look forward to the progress of OnePlus establishing a presence here in M'sia. :D
