About the only downside to buying a OnePlus 3T is the wait for shipping, but that’s no longer the case. Starting today, January 24, fans can order the 64GB model in gunmetal with immediate shipping throughout North America and Europe.
“A New Year means a new start. Our goal for this year is to once again deliver the best technology to our community,” OnePlus says in a post on its official forum. “It’s just as important to do so as fast as possible though, so we’ll be looking to reduce our delivery time.”
For now, immediate shipping is only available on the 64GB OnePlus 3T in gunmetal — not the 128GB model, or the soft gold version. What’s more, OnePlus cannot guarantee that immediate shipping will be available permanently, so take advantage of it while you can.
As the company catches up with demand, however, it will be easier to improve its shipping times. Unless there are any issues with its supply chain in the future, then, there’s no reason why other OnePlus 3T variants won’t be available with faster shipping soon.
In fact, as I write this, the soft gold model is available with immediate shipping in the U.K. However, for those in the U.S., it’s “currently unavailable.”
OnePlus has also launched a new feature called Raffles, which is available through its forum. Users gain points for things like leveling up on the forum ladder or helping out at OnePlus events, which they can then use to buy raffle tickets.
Some of the prizes currently available in the raffle include OnePlus Bullet V2 earphones, an official OnePlus 3/3T case, a sweet OnePlus backpack, and more.
