OnePlus in Pakistan is nowhere to be seen now. In March 2021, United Mobile announced that they were going to start the distribution of OnePlus products. They made huge claims about offering nationwide availability. Moreover, they promised that special OnePlus exclusives will also make their way to Pakistan. However, none of their promises were fulfilled.
The last device launched in Pakistan by OnePlus was the Nord CE. This is still selling on their flagship store on Daraz. Nord 2 was also launched in Pakistan. However, only a few units were sold as the product was taken off shelves due to rising taxes. Since then, no OnePlus device has made its way to Pakistan officially.
When United Mobile announced them being the official distributor of OnePlus, they were lying about one thing. United Mobile announced that they were the first official distributors. However, that wasn’t true. A war of words started from here. As Rockville was the first distributor officially, they posted it again on social media.
Between this situation, there wasn’t a single official announcement from OnePlus. Their media team didn’t even bother. OnePlus Pakistan website was up on the internet. However, it was of no use. You couldn’t buy any products from the site. Moreover, you could not even check the availability of any product from their website. Furthermore, their representatives on Daraz were extremely unprofessional. They didn’t give useful and correct information to the customers. Moreover, there was no product launch strategy. The representatives themselves didn’t know what product will launch or what won’t.
In this frustrating situation, OnePlus fans were the most affected. They were frustrated and disappointed. OnePlus was solely at fault in this whole fiasco. They should’ve cleared the air out. Moreover, they should have had a proper announcement of going official in Pakistan. On social media, there should have been a dedicated OnePlus Pakistan page. If United Mobile and Rockville were fighting over being distributors, who should have solved it, OnePlus! OnePlus definitely messed it up in Pakistan. They could have been on the rise here if they took matters seriously. If they weren’t ready, they could have waited. Even now there is no whereabouts of OnePlus in Pakistan officially. Fans want answers. We hope OnePlus gives a response.
