    Edit: Friends in Australia, thank you for the amazing support. We're putting sales for this region on hold until we're sure our Aussie fans can get the best OnePlus experience. We'll continue to provide the promised after-sales support for OnePlus 5 users in Australia.

    Dear Australian friends,

    Earlier this month, we announced we’re bringing the OnePlus 5 to Australia through a soft launch program. We are excited to inform you all that sales of the OnePlus 5 in Australia are now open! https://oneplus.net/au/soft-launch

    The OnePlus 5 with 6GB RAM + 64GB storage in Slate Gray and Soft Gold colors will be available for A$599. The OnePlus 5 with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage in Midnight Black and Slate Gray colors will be available for A$699. In addition, we’re offering a free OnePlus 5 Sandstone Protective Case with every phone purchase.

    Please note that prices set during the Soft Launch are not indicative of future prices of our products in Australia (prices during a full launch would most likely be higher).  We’re opening up a limited trial run for sales while supplies last, to test our product and supply chain. If you have questions, please refer to the FAQ below.

    Also, be on the lookout for more details on the fan meet up events we’ll be holding in September in Sydney and Melbourne. We would love to get your feedback on the soft launch and meet you face-to-face! If you’re interested, make sure you sign up here!

    Thank you and we can’t wait for what’s ahead!

    Steven

    What will be the best way for us in the future to get our hands on an Australian charger once it's in the market?

    It might seem like a silly question. But will this soft launch be online for those of us who live a casual 3,865 km from Sydney?

    Good price.
    But that is mighty strange that it doesn't come with an Australian charger. In fact, is that even legal considering that certain products in Australia, like chargers, need to be sold with an A tick certification?

    Been looking forward to this for ages and I am looking forward to buying the OnePlus 5. Very confused as to why there is not an Australian plug included.
    The most exciting part of waiting for the Oneplus 5 to be launched in Australia (instead of purchasing from America and getting it shipped from a friend) was the Australian plug. Now I will need an adapter for dat super sweet fast charge. Bump up the price a little and include that Australian plug if you have to.

    Yeah. im a long ways away from Melbourne and Sydney. Pity you're not doing a meet n greet in Perth.
    Will this be available online? If it is, will it be via the official OnePlus website?

    So just to confirm, for the soft launch, can we order online? or do we need to be in Sydney/Melbourne?
    I've interpreted it as we can order online, but I'd rather ask a silly question than miss out :p

    Agreed. Was holding off on ordering a grey-market purchase in the hope that buying on the Australian launch would include an AU plug charger. A little disappointed now and very unsure what to do :-/
