Analyst Says Due to AMOLED Display Shortage Affecting OnePlus 3, Buyers Better Wait for OnePlus 3S

by Habeeb Onawole 8

The OnePlus 3 is starting to run out of stock and the blame has been put on a shortage of AMOLED displays. The issue as affected many phones with OLED displays. OPPO for example has another version of the OPPO R9 that uses a LCD display. This was done to prevent the phone from being out of stock.

According to analyst, Pan Jiutang, he thinks since the OnePlus 3 is running out of stock due to low supply of AMOLED displays, buyers should rather wait for a new phone called the OnePlus 3S. It appears the OnePlus 3S will have a LCD display and hence wouldn’t suffer from supply issues.


While the info hasn’t been confirmed yet, we can’t rule out the possibility of that happening as a shortage will cause buyers to consider other options.

Another source, Liuzuo Hu, had earlier reported on the release of a phone called the OnePlus 3S but the question is if the only change coming to the phone is the change in display. OnePlus may decide to also include the new Snapdragon 821 processor and retain all the other features.

Until OnePlus confirms this, please take this with a grain of salt.

    i cant see what the 3s would offer greatly over the oneplus3.. i dont buy these reasons it seems like a marketing move to me, here is the thing wouldnt it take longer to make a new phone with a new processor possibly new camera with new software programming etc vs just waiting for amoled screens from their suppliers????? the oneplus 3 fanboys sure wont mind though

      Most probably a rumour only, oneplus doesn’t not have the capacity to start production of a new model even if it more or less has same components as OnePlus 3.

        thats what i believe

      • The Calm Critic

        True this doesn’t make much sense going by the track record. And even if the next one is coming later, for the love of God man please let it NOT be named “3S” or “4S” and even a Plus. Ffs this iPhone-ish aping needs to stop yesterday.

        They couldn’t even maintain production of the OPX.

      Ye I couldn’t agree more. When was the last time you ever saw news about oneplus.
      Yes me too – can’t remember, so if this brings them to the lime light again then they will do it and they have got the cheap advertising. Their team is ingenious.

    I own a OnePlus 3 and I’d be pretty damn furious if this actually went ahead…

    I feel very much then that OnePlus’s ‘limited support’ would then be focused at their new ‘3S’ instead of the 3 and after only owning the phone for a few months now, it’d be money down the pan in a way… :-S
