Luckily, Chinese buyers of the new OnePlus 2 don’t need to go through the invite system like in other parts of the world. Sales began today in China, and even though the new Moto X Style seemed to overshadow the OnePlus 2 launch, that may not be the case.
OnePlus announced that it sold 30,000 OnePlus 2 units within only 64 seconds of availability.
The handset is already selling like hotcakes in its homeland and it will be interesting to see if the company can keep this momentum going. Last year, OnePlus completely mis-judged how many units would go on to sell, and hopefully the increased production the company has promised will be enough for the high-demand. Last year the company sold over 1 million units, and this year it expects to sell 3-5 million OnePlus 2 handsets by the end of 2015. Only time will tell if the company can reach its estimates.
