It’s almost impossible to get your hands on a OnePlus One and thanks to a delay, things have gotten even harder. The $300 Android powerhouse was scheduled to launch last month, but its manufacturer hit a bit of a snag that required some additional work. Now without a clear-cut release date in sight, the company’s software partner, Cyanogen took to Reddit to shed a little light on the situation.

The software maker’s community moderator Abhisek Devkota (aka Ciwrl) says the delay is due to a recently discovered OpenSSL bug. These issues were made public on June 5th, which ultimately led to OnePlus deciding to delay its new smartphone in order to address this potential risk. With the recent controversy surrounding OpenSSL-related threats, it’s understandable that a company would want to avoid having its newest device linked to such a negative topic. Hopefully OnePlus will be able to resolve this matter sooner than later, because its self-proclaimed “flagship killer” is having some serious trouble finding its way out of the starting gates.
