OnePlus 5 was unveiled on June 20 and while the phone has not yet made a stop in every corner of this world, quite a good number of people were able to grab one via the company’s Early Drop initiative.
This Early Drop thing was merely a way for OnePlus to give early adopters a chance to get the OnePlus 5 phone ahead of others, with the official sales set to begin on June 27. However, it appears that some people who had jumped into the craze via the this initiative are yet to get the tracking numbers for their orders and Carl Pei, CEO and co-founder of OnePlus, has an explanation as to why this is happening.
According to Pei, people who ordered the OnePlus 5 during the Early Drop are experiencing delays getting their tracking numbers due to a system overload. As it is, there are so many people who are hitting the company with order for the OnePlus 5, which has literally overwhelmed the company. However, the good side of the story is that this won’ have any effects on the shipping speeds of the phone once the order is through.

The company also notes that all Early Drop orders will still be shipped and delivered as per the initial time at checkout, which means they is literally nothing to worry about even if you don’t receive your tracking number on time. On the contrary, some of those who placed orders and did not receive timely tracking numbers are claiming that the delivery date has been affected.
Hopefully, yours hasn’t. Or has it? Feel free to share your story with us in the comments below.
