Just ahead of OnePlus Two or rumored affordable OnePlus One Lite launch, OnePlus has teased an “Farewell To Invites” on April 20 through its social media accounts and the teaser speaks “You’re invited” to buy OnePlus One smartphone directly from online or offline without holding any flash sale, so from now onwards the smartphone will be on “open sale” forever. More details on the concept can be found right after this break.
From today you won’t require any invitation to purchase OnePlus One 16GB or 64GB variants, which went on open sale globally. The announcement was made to clear out all the remaining stocks before the arrival of 2nd-generation OnePlus One device and other devices from the company. Also offering 75% discounts on all OnePlus flip covers and premium screen protectors just for a day, 24 hours.
Interested ones can buy Bamboo StyleSwap cover without an invite till stock live and lasts, These are only valid in USA, Canada, European Union, Hong Kong and Tawian.
Notably, OnePlus isn’t completely discarding the ‘invite system’, but it will go live after the launch of OnePlus Two in the Q3 of 2015, it will be sold as usually as via invite only, initially.
Carl Pei, Co-founder and Head of Global, OnePlus, said
“By rigorously testing and improving our logistical structure over the last one year, we are far more confident that our processes have matured enough for us to handle the increased production and after-sales support that comes along with opening up sales. It’s what we’ve been working towards, and now we’re ready.”
“This current shift from an invite system to a non-invite system is a big step, one from which we will learn a great deal before the OnePlus 2 launch, with invites, in the third quarter of this year.”
Two days left for the announcement and user who want to buy OnePlus One openly can head over the Amazon.in and make your deal.
