We are just a few days away from the global launch of the OnePlus 5, the Chinese smartphone maker’s latest flagship. With the launch so close, it indeed makes sense to pull out stocks of the older model and replace them with the new. Turns out, OnePlus has done just this for the US and European markets. After informing customers via a post on its official forums, that this is indeed the ‘last chance’ to buy the OnePlus 3T flagship, a report now points out that the OnePlus 3T is now officially ‘out of stock’ in a number of markets in Europe and in the US.

A report by Gizbot indicates that stores in the US and in Europe have taken down the ‘Buy Now’ button. Users visiting the OnePlus website for now can only check out the OnePlus 3T’s features.

That global launch is set to take place on 20 June. OnePlus is expected to announce its all new OnePlus 5 smartphone, one that is more powerful both in terms of performance and image capturing capabilities and comes with an all new-design.

While the models of the OnePlus 3T are now out of stock in the US and European markets, fans in India can still buy the flagship handset. OnePlus recently revealed that it would continue to sell the outgoing OnePlus flagship until later this year in India. In an official statement, OnePlus told Gadgets360, “The OnePlus 3T (64 GB, 128 GB) will continue to be available for purchase in India until later this year. OnePlus products and accessories are available through three official sales channels, including oneplustore.in, Amazon.in, and the OnePlus Experience Store in Bengaluru,”

Post the global launch of the OnePlus 5, the new flagship smartphone will be launched in China on 21 June, with the India launch set for 22 June.

The device is expected to retail its sub $500 price tag with prices starting from (approximately) Rs 30,800 in India and going all they way up to Rs 39,000 for the high-end versions.

Talking about versions, from what we know so far; the handset will be available in two variants differentiated by RAM and internal storage size. The lower priced model would be available with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage while the higher priced model will pack in a hefty 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The handset will run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chipset built on the 10nm process and will pack in a dual camera setup at the back.
