Our favorite anti-Shenzhen Smartphone company has announced that they’re finally getting rid of their infuriating invitation system for the OnePlus One and while officially making mention of the OnePlus 2 Smartphone.
The OnePlus blog notes, “Our invite system has been a fascinating, evolving experiment. Within the community, feelings towards our invite system vary, and we understand that. The reality is that we wouldn’t be where we are today without it.” This scrappy start up that has done everything to distance itself from it’s Chinese roots has moved over one million OnePlus Ones worldwide.
If you’re not keen on waiting for the OnePlus 2 starting today, everyone and anyone who has yeared to own the Flagship killed can now order it without and invite. In addition, they are offering a 24-hour sale that discounts Flip Covers and Screen Protectors by 75%, and also opened up the Bamboo StyleSwap covers to all without an invite. These deep discounts are in honor of their one year anniversary. how they made this call was they let their company dog Una decide. (I’ve met Una…she’s not well trained, the destructive running in the video is totally legit).
Now to the good part of the announcement, the OnePlus 2, their next flagship smartphone is official. The bad news, that it will follow the same initial launch with invites. OnePlus said, “The OnePlus 2 will bring the challenges that come along with a brand new product, and initially, our invite system will help us to manage that risk. It also helps us to be sure that every OnePlus 2 user gets the amazing experience that they deserve.” We’re going to cross our fingers and toes that this is in fact true!
