The Chinese OEM took to the OnePlus Community forum to announce about the warranty extension on its products in the country. Given the pandemic crisis in the country, OnePlus cited that there will be a delay in delivery for recent product orders to certain locations, and that it won’t be able to provide the estimated delivery time on such others. Further, the service center operations are temporarily halted in compliance with Government regulations, the company noted.

Due to the recent developments beyond our control, there will be a delay in delivery for recent product orders to certain locations and we are unable to fulfill the order, at present. Unfortunately, we may not be able to predict the delivery of your order, however, we will ship the order as soon as possible from our end once restrictions ease,” OnePlus stated in the forum.
