Oneplus One is one of the best Android devices available in the market right now, but it’s not easy to get yourself a unit. To score a OnePlus One, customers need an invite which are given as a part of contests going on OnePlus’s website or via a person who already owns one.
This may have restricted the sales of the handset since it’s not widely available as other flagship devices. However, things are about to change in the near future as the company mentioned that they are going to abandon the invite system starting October.
Not too long ago, the folks at OnePlus took an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit where one of the user asked if we will see an end to this annoying invite system. They said, “We are working on a pre-orders system, we were initially aiming for September but it’s been slightly delayed, hopefully we’ll be ready to launch it in October.”
They didn’t mention how the pre-order system will work, but we may get to see the handset land on some retailers and even carriers in the coming months.
OnePlus One features a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16/64GB of internal storage, 13Mp rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,100 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system — with Cyanogenmod.
Are you interested in picking up a OnePlus One when the invite system goes off?
