    Dear friends from Down Under,

    How are you going?

    Since the early days of our company, we’ve seen your support on our forums, social media and even offline at our fan events around the world! Last month while having ice cream with some fans in New Delhi, one of you even flew over from Melbourne to join us. I was speechless.

    First of all, I know that many of you have purchased our products via friends or family traveling abroad, or through parallel imports. This can’t compare to the user experience when dealing directly with OnePlus. Sorry that you had to endure this, and that it took us so long.

    The good news is that we’re finally taking steps to enter Australia, and we'd like to enlist your help. Later this month, we’re bringing the OnePlus 5 to Australia through a soft launch program. The goal will be to test our product and supply chain, and we’ll be opening up a limited trial run for sales.

    In September, our team will be visiting Melbourne and Sydney to talk to you about how this first step went and hear your suggestions on how we can improve. Most importantly, we’d like to meet face-to-face those of you we haven’t had a chance to meet yet! Please fill out the following form and stay tuned for more information leading up to the events. https://goo.gl/forms/iMuo34nkF1JqLkTa2

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

    Nice one, I am a 3T owner from Australia. I imported mine so it'll be nice to see some local presence for those on the fence.

    Considering the cause of the Jelly Scrolling™ being the upside down screens, will the effect be negated or will it multiply in Australia ? :rolleyes:

    How about service centres in Australia ? What are the plans around that?

    Service centers world wide would be ideal, though, it might increase the phone prices a little, but it would be worth it.

    Damn it, just bought a Samsung Galaxy S8 two weeks ago in frustration of having to buy my previous Oneplus 3 through my friends in Canada! (Two shipping fees and Canadian Tax) OUCH!!!

    Will more than happily buy a OnePlus 5 at the launch event in Melbourne. This will be my 4th Oneplus (One, X and 3)

    Looking forward to Band 28 and a proper aussie power charger!

    Thanks OnePlus

    The OP5 is not a bargain phone anymore. I personally think you are better off buying an S8 for a little more.

    Australia is far from any side. Ideal scenario would be to tie with local repair brands..!!
