[df-subtitle]It will return when the second-gen smartphone launches this fall[/df-subtitle]

OnePlus on Monday announced that it will no longer require potential One buyers to have an invitation. Since launching roughly one year ago the $300 handset has been somewhat difficult to procure for customers. The invitation system has evolved and loosened over time, however, there’s never been a full-blown availability.

Running a modified version (Oxygen) of Android 4.4 KitKat,  the One features a 5.5-inch display, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. The unlocked device is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB RAM and includes at least 16GB  of storage.

The second-gen OnePlus handset is expected in the third quarter of 2015.

[blockquote author=”OnePlus”]The OnePlus 2 will bring the challenges that come along with a brand new product, and initially, our invite system will help us to manage that risk. It also helps us to be sure that every OnePlus 2 user gets the amazing experience that they deserve. [/blockquote]

To celebrate the temporary goodbye of the invitations, OnePlus is offering a 75% discount on Flip Covers and Premium Screen Protectors. What’s more, Bamboo StyleSwap covers will also be available without an invite. The deals are valid in the following regions: USA/Canada, the European Union, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

  1. Their whole “invite” system was a huge turn-off for those who weren’t invited. Their little system made them a big NEVER for me.
