Ever since its launch, OnePlus pushed its “invite-only” system on the buyers. But now, the company is finally realizing the bad influence that the system inflicted on the sales chart. OnePlus has announced that starting from December 5, the OnePlus 2 is free from the clutches of “invites”, which means that you can buy the device like you buy any other smartphone, without dealing with any crappy pre-requisite.
OnePlus’s co-founder, Carl Pei, said in a blog post,“The invite system has been crucial to letting us scale our operations and has given our fans a unique way to share OnePlus with the people in their lives. But we are always trying to enhance the OnePlus experience for you and taking risks to push ourselves and show real improvements. That’s why we’re making the OnePlus 2 invite-free … forever!”
All the interested buyers can very well head to the OnePlus’s online store to purchase the OnePlus 2, starting from December 5. In a rather appealing move, the company has also decided to follow the same strategy with the OnePlus X, but that will be under effect for just a day, only on December 5. OnePlus has also thrown in a bunch of other offers along, such as 50 percent discount on OnePlus 2 StyleSwap covers, 90 percent on plenty of accessories, and around 10 percent on all the other accessories. Also, a limited number of first orders will also get an exclusive “Never Settle mousepad” in a spirit of the holiday season. Interestingly, OnePlus will complete two years of operation on December 17, well time sure does fly, right?
