I guess yes …
I guess yes …
Logical order of events:
Announce new phone
Retire old phone
Fairphone PR department:
Until now, only the FP3 is discontinued, this step was overdue anyway, it should had been done, as the FP3+ hit the market, which is just a modified FP3.
But the FP3+ is out of stock, so you cannot order any phone at Fairphone currently…
Still no hint or proof for a FP4 soon.
Since Fairphone get the phones produced in batches, that can happen and isn’t anything new.
Right, who is going to order a FP3+ now when there are rumors about a FP4, although not officially acknowledged?
People who don’t operate like that, obviously.
If the only thing taken away from the FP3+ is that it might not be the newest Fairphone anymore anytime soon … some people might just not care about that, as long as it’s still a fit for their needs.
A new device might have another five years support when it hits the market, so I would see this as a strong argument to wait with the order…
Of course it would also be reasonable to wait just to have a look at what the new device might be like, but Fairphone’s history hints at something differently sized … not everybody finds the Fairphone 3+ too small or too large.
In any case, I’m pretty convinced they won’t sell zero Fairphone 3+ for the time being .
Yeah, that much is known.
