Production rate?

    If they build one per day, then double production every next day, there will be more OP2's in the world than there are sand particles on the beaches in just one month !

    "We are going to launch two products this year and we have set our goal internally at 3 to 5 million units. "​

    "This year" is vague, but suppose they meant in the current calendar year 2015, so that's 3-5M in 6 months effectively which = 500K-800K/month.

    But then also read:

    "But the volume is not our priority. Our goal is to receive continued positive feedback from our customers. We sold one million units last year, and we have a very good reputation. I’d like to sell 3 million units this year with positive feedback rather than 5 million this year but with some degree of negative feedback."
    So that implies a cautious initial quantity, wait for feedback and then tweak, then ramp-up.

    So there may be an initial release, a pause, then a ramp-up.

    So if there is a ramp-up, i.e. factory halts, wait for users to flag up build issues, tweak the hardware, then resume, that needs a good 1 month pause. The flipside of a pause though is 1 month of 1.5M people moaning about waiting for invites....so.....

    As for the very first initial launch Aug 11th released handsets we have:


    "We’re talking about 30-50x last year"​

    So what we observed was "Early members" = about 1K last time (roughly) so about 30K-50K this time.

    It would be cash wise, image foolish, to release those 30k-50k units and wait for owner feedback and then resume building allowing for feedback. The issue in that pause is >1M people moaning for weeks venting about waiting for invites. Not an easy set of decisions there!

    Production wont influence the number of invites day one. Do you really think they can handle 200 thousand orders the first day? No way. They had trouble selling cardboard. The invites will be throttled to the ability to handle orders, regardless of inventory.

    It seems that its all speculations. Any confirmed numbers by folks who work at OnePlus and manage production?

    Thats a curious number that alot of people seem to overlook. Its one thing to say 50k available at launch, but knowing how quickly stock can be replenished after its depleted is important as well especially when the initial stock numbers are so low to begin with. Guess we will just have to wait and see how quickly the not so fortunate get their invites.

    Its just the 12 of them plus about another dozen 8 yr old kids. If you want to get more production they'll have to cut out nap time.

    I bet only below 100 a day.
    And I think it's already a very positive thinking.
