OnePlus is a relatively important manufacturer of mid-range and high-end smartphones, which surprised its own and strangers when it announced its arrival in Mexico in 2020. Hours ago, rumors spread that the manufacturer would leave the country, but he has just denied it.
Javier Matuk, one of the most important technology journalists in Mexico, posted on Twitter a few hours ago that OnePlus was about to conclude its operations in Mexico, just 2 years after its arrival, although without mentioning the reasons for this departure.

However, it seems that this report was not true. Through its social networks, and even commenting on the same Matuk publication, OnePlus confirmed that it is not leaving Mexico, as it remains committed to this market. “We will continue our integration in the country, fulfilling the relationship with our Mexican users and delivering high-quality devices and services in this market,” the company assured.
Thank you for your interest, OnePlus Mexico remains strong and we will continue betting on this market, we will continue our integration in the country, fulfilling the relationship with our Mexican users and delivering high quality devices and services in this market.

Despite the fact that Matuk’s report was not true, the reality is that OnePlus is getting things complicated in the region. According to information obtained by Xataka, the marketing and product manager of the manufacturer in Mexico revealed through LinkedIn, a restructuring (accompanied by staff cuts) just a few hours ago. In addition, figures from the analysis firm of The CIU, show that OnePlus is just the 9°. brand that sells the most in the country, with a market share of just 1.4%.
