In a couple of hours, the OnePlus 2 will be revealed in an official capacity. We expect that specs will be revealed and confirmed, its design shown off, and hopefully we will get a release date along with pricing as well. However if you can’t wait a couple of hours, you’re in luck because thanks to a leaked poster, the handset’s release date might have been revealed.
According to the image above, it basically states that the OnePlus 2 will be released on the 8th of August. However there is a catch and that is the handset will be released in limited quantity via its Experience stores in China, meaning that if you’re not from China it looks like you will need to purchase the handset online.
Purchasing a handset online will also require users to have an invite, which is basically how OnePlus plans on controlling the supply and demand of the handset. However unlike last year’s fiasco, the company has promised that this year’s invite system will be much better and that they will have about 50x more units than before in anticipation of the demand.
Hopefully this means that when it comes to trying to secure yourself a handset, you will not have to end up waiting for months before you get one. Either way the announcement is soon so hopefully we will have more concrete details to share with you guys by then.
