Like it or not, the invite system that OnePlus implemented throughout the OnePlus One release enabled the company to regulate and accurately predict supply and demand to ensure there wasn’t surplus stock costing them money and there weren’t huge waiting lists.
Well, that same invite system is back again, but this time with an enhancement, for the OnePlus 2 – the companies latest next-generation device to the original OPO. With 4GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 810 processor, fingerprint sensor, and 3300mAh battery, all for under $450, the OnePlus Two is shaping up to be one heck of a device. Hell, even the camera looks pretty decent.
[blockquote author=”OnePlus”]With the OnePlus One, we did a bit better than we thought we would. This has made us more confident, and therefore we will have far more launch inventory than last time. We’re talking about 30-50x last year. This means that it will be significantly easier to get an invite from the very beginning.[/blockquote]
This time around, for the OnePlus 2 launch, the company have introduced a reservation list, and this will be key to everyone getting the invite they want. No need to beg, steal, or borrow anymore, since you can simply put your email address on this reservation list and you’ll be contacted when your invite is available.
For those who don’t have time to hang out on forums or social media, we’ll have a quick and painless reservation list. Simply enter your email and we’ll send you an invite as soon as they’re available. We’ll be prioritizing our early forum supporters here.
Everyone who buys a OnePlus 2 will also receive invites to share with their close friends like last time, so whilst the reservation list will see you get an invite, there will still be some begging you’ll have to pull to get one instantly.
