So far, there has been no explanation for the slow production of OnePlus 3 phones, but on the company’s forum sheds light on the reason now co-founder. In a reply to a thread, he tells, that it is a lack of AMOLED display panels, due to the many weeks of waiting on OnePlus 3.
‘The demand for AMOLED is higher in 2016 than the industry had expected after a total lower than expected demand for AMOLED in 2015. Production capacity at the factory was therefore reduced. Why is the delivery time increased sharply, ‘ he added in his reply.
