One of the most common complaints about the smartphone manufacturer, OnePlus, is that you have to wait for an invite before you can actually buy one of its handsets. It hasn’t been helped that its latest device, the OnePlus 2, has been in short supply, the global rollout of invites has experienced delays, resulting in yet more frustration. It will come as good news then, to learn that OnePlus is holding an Open Sale on October 12, where you can snag a OnePlus 2 without needing an invite. As you might expect, though, with this being OnePlus, things aren’t quite as simple as it might seem.
The Open Sale will be open for a one-hour period, covering four time zones, and there’s a maximum of 2 handsets per order. OnePlus do state that you can place as many orders as you like, though.
Open Sale times:
- Asia: 12-1pm HKT
- Europe: 12-1pm CEST
- North America: 12-1pm PDT, 3-4pm ET
- India: 12-1pm IST, visit the OnePlus page on Amazon.in and add the device to your basket
Shipping times are fluid, in that the sooner you place an order, the sooner it will be shipped, but OnePlus warns that order processing times could differ due to the demand. Finally, if you place an order for the OnePlus 2 during the Open Sale, and subsequently receive an invite, you can cancel the order to use the invite, thereby avoiding the wait.
Will you be placing your order for a OnePlus 2 during the Open Sale despite the alleged missing features? Let us know in the comments.
