We know you want to see OnePlus sales in Australia, but this isn't going to help.

OnePlus has yet to bring its phones to Australia, and it still doesn't have any public plans to do so despite the appearance of a new oneplus.com.au website. Going to that URL sure looks legit, closely mimicking the main OnePlus website design and saying "We're Bringing OnePlus to Australia" — but as Ausdroid found, the website actually has no affiliation with OnePlus at all.

Once you dig a tad, you'll now see the message in the website's "About" section:

We're not affiliated with OnePlus, but we are determined to bring them down under, and that's why we've set up this site. The more interest we have here, the better chance we'll have convincing the folks at OnePlus that Australia is a market they want to enter.

Well, they didn't do a great job making that clear from the start, and the website is extremely misleading in order to try and collect email addresses. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has indicated that a "cease and desist" order will be headed to the OnePlus fan's copycat website.

Usually a website like this wouldn't get too much traction, but when someone is able to snag an otherwise-legitimate URL like that it makes it a bit more believable. OnePlus is known for having extremely passionate and engaged fans, but this is definitely not the best way to go about convincing the company to expand to new countries.
