Never mind that OnePlus is struggling to commit to shipments all over the world. Never mind that the China-based company has another phone – probably a midrange competitor – coming out which would likely add to manufacturing and shipping pressure. Never mind all that, because if all your eyes see is the fantastic OnePlus 2 flagship killer, then you can buy it without that darned invite on Oct. 12, but only for an hour.
The window of opportunity for you to get a OnePlus 2 without an invite is pretty slim, not to mention that getting one shipped to you is a task in itself. But OnePlus is again opening up the window for you who don’t have invites to get a shot at their new flagship killer on Oct. 12, for an hour – that’s 12PM to 1PM Pacific time, or 3PM to 4PM Eastern in the US. In Asia, that’s 12PM in Hong Kong, 12PM CEST in Europe, and for India 12PM IST.
OnePlus had earlier apologized that manufacturing issues had been the cause delay of shipments to the European and US markets. Hopefully that is all behind them now, and this sales push would mean that consumers can get their hands on the merchandise at a relatively acceptable amount of time.
The OnePlus 2 retails for USD$389, still a pretty wonderful price for a machine that will compete with most flagship phones out there. If you want a shot at this, make sure you remember the time windows for where you are.
