OnePlus One has been one popular phone among the geeks as well as regular buyers. But one of the things holding it from reaching the hands of many consumers is the invite-based system of purchasing the device. But starting today, you will be able to buy the OnePlus One without any invite, forever.
OnePlus has been observing Open Sale days, where OnePlus allows you to buy the One without invites for a limited time period. But now prospective buyers can purchase the 64GB Sandstone Black and the 16GB Silk White variants by a regular online transaction without any invite or flash sale or pre-registration.
According to co-founder and head of global, Carl Pei, "By rigorously testing and improving our logistical structure over the last one year, we are far more confident that our processes have matured enough for us to handle the increased production and after-sales support. This current shift from an invite system to a non-invite system is a big step, one from which we will learn a great deal before the OnePlus 2 launch, with invites, in the third quarter of this year."
Apart from adopting a non-invite based sales model for the One, OnePlus will also be selling its accessories at a flat 50 percent discount. You can buy the OnePlus JBL E1+ earphones, OnePlus Flip Cover (white) and the OnePlus Premium Matte Screen Protector at 50 per cent discount till April 23.
Recently OnePlus released its own custom ROM – the OxygenOS – for OnePlus One users. Those interested in flashing the new OS can download the update from OnePlus’s microsite.
