OnePlus managed to create humongous hype even before the official launch of OnePlus One, a phone designed on “Never Settle” philosophy which claims to be 2014 flagship killer. However, the Invite system which required fans to participate in contests (some really weird ones) and other promotional activities to get an Invite to buy a OnePlus One, ruined the momentum.
Good news for OnePlus One fans is that the company will finally renounced the notorious invite system this October. OnePlus is now planning to shift to a pre-order based model which will be rather more appealing to fans eager to part with their money.
while taking part in a Reddit AMA, a question popped up regarding the end of the invite system. OnePlus responded with the following – “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.”
It’s been several months since OnePlus One Global launch and die-hard fans have already managed to lay hands on it one way or the other. But still this is good news for Indian fans as the company is about to start its operations in India. It has already put a listing for head of operations in India and we can expect the above mentioned “pre-order” system to be the retail approach in Indian market.
To refresh your memory, OnePlus One will feature 5.5 Inch Full HD JDI display powered by 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset backed by 3 GB RAM. Imaging hardware includes 13 MP Rear/ 5 MP front Snapper, while other features include 3100 mAh battery, NFC, internal GPS antenna + GLONASS, Digital Compass and Tri-microphone with noise cancellation. The 16 GB variant will cost around $299 and 64 GB variant will cost $349.
