You can now buy the OnePlus 2 without an invite

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.
