Order your OnePlus One now, no invite required

Posted by wicked November - 28 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Since its release back in June, the OnePlus One has demonstrated to be one of the hardest smartphones on the market to get our hands on, due solely to its incredibly high demand. To keep up with the large amount of orders, the company had to introduce a unique invitation system in which customers had to first obtain an invite before they could purchase a handset. But for the next 72 hours, the device is available for anyone to order, no invitation necessary.

The OnePlus One is a powerhouse packing a 5.5-inch LTPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, 3GB of RAM, an Adreno 330 GPU, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 16/64GB of internal storage and a 3,100mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.

In terms of pricing, the Sandstone Black (64GB) variant of the device will set you back $349, whilst the Silk White (16GB) model is retailing for $299. Also, since it’s Black Friday, OnePlus is offering a handful of discounts on accessories, too, including cases, earphones, screen protectors and cables.

All orders are expected to arrive before December 25, but, please note, that this promotion is only running while stocks last and once it’s gone the traditional invitation method will be resumed — so if you want to get your mitts on one, act fast.
