OnePlus Nord open sale date pushed to 6 August as 'pre-bookings were high in number'

OnePlus will give a 1-year warranty extension for users who experienced a delay in the dispatch of orders.

OnePlus had previously announced that the newly launched OnePlus Nord will go on sale on 4 August but as per the latest update, the open sale date has been pushed to 6 August. Now, the smartphone will go on sale on Amazon during the Prime Day sale.

As per the company blog, high pre-bookings number caused the delay. The company will start shipping the devices today itself but it is expected that some users who have pre-booked the smartphone might experience the delay in dispatch. OnePlus says it will give a 1-year warranty extension against the user’s IMEI by 31 August for users who experienced a delay in the dispatch of orders.

To check the warranty extension, users will need to download and login to the OnePlus Care app, add OnePlus Nord under the 'My Devices' category, and check the extended warranty plan.
