It has been announced that OnePlus 2 does not require an invite anymore, so anyone can buy the new phone anytime online the way they can with any other smartphone.
Until now, OnePlus had sold the OnePlus 2 through an arcane system of reservation lists and invites. Supply lagged woefully behind demand. It was frustrating.
The reason for the invite system, according to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, has been to help ensure that the fledgling company grows at a sustainable rate. One reason OnePlus can offer bargain basement prices on top shelf phones is that the company knows it has a buyer for every phone it manufactures. The annoyance of invites, Pei reckons, beats potentially ruinous amounts of unsold inventory.
That stance appears to have softened, at least with the company’s flagship OnePlus 2
“The invite system has been crucial to letting us scale our operations and has given our fans a unique way to share OnePlus with the people in their lives,” writes Pei. “But we are always trying to enhance the OnePlus experience for you and taking risks to push ourselves and show real improvements. That’s why we’re making the OnePlus 2 invite-free … forever.”
OnePlus 2 features— 5.5-inch full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage space. It also includes 13-megapixel rear camera and five-megapixel front camera. This is a dual-SIM device with a USB Type-C connector. OnePlus 2 runs Oxygen OS 2.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and has a 3,000mAh battery. With the OnePlus 2, the company has built a device that competes with likes of the Google Nexus 6P and others.
In fact, the superior specs sheet at a comparatively lower price gives it an edge over other flagships.
We have already seen Augmented Reality, also known as AR, in many cars before. But, this is the first time, we are having something like this in a car showroom. Microsoft has recently partnered with Volvo to bring Augmented Reality into Car Showrooms by the use of Holo Lens. The main aim is to enhance the experience while buying a car. The customers are able to look at 3D realistic figures of the parts of the car, ranging from the chassis, the engine and even watch the transmission and drivetrain while it is working.
Buyers are also free to customize the outer look of the car to get a 3D preview of what the car would look like, before it even gets manufacturered. Changing the color, interiors or rims, is possible. The Hololens also tends to showcase, certain features of the car they are about to buy, which they may not have been aware of unless they had read the manual.
It is great that we are seeing so much development in the Augmented Reality and the Virtual Reality sector, as we are advancing towards the future. Microsoft’s Halo Lens isn’t the only project that is looking into this sector, Google’s Glass, also known as Project Aura, is also working on more wearbles enhancing Augmented Reality.
