OnePlus One has been the most talked about phone this year and many fans were frustrated when OnePlus announced that you will need an Invite to buy one. If you are a diehard enthusiast and still optimist about your Invite, OnePlus has announced that it will soon release “first major batch of invites”.
The winners will be picked based on their forum age, participation and recent activities. To sum it up, if you have been an active member of their forums for some time now, you will get your invite. Once you get it, you will get 24 hours to make good use of it, after that it will be passed to the next person in queue.
In case you are new to the forums, OnePlus will also announce a couple of contests which you can win to get an Invite. You can also source your invite from those who purchase OnePlus One.
Perhaps in the next few months, it will be easier to get an Invite from OnePlus and sometime later, you will be able to pre-order it just like any other phone. Right now there are 48,327 members on OnePlus forums and some of these users will get the chance to actually buy one.
To refresh your memory, OnePlus One is a great value for money smartphone which offers 5.5 Inch Full HD display backed by 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 quad core chipset with 3 GB RAM and 16 GB/ 64 GB storage options. The Invites will roll out for 64 GB variant first. Fueled by CynogenMod 11S based on Android 4.4 KitKat and powered by 3100 mAh battery, one plus one looks and feels a lot like an OPPO flagship. The price starts from $299 for 16 GB. For further insight you can read OnePlus One Quick Review.
