OnePlus took to Twitter to announce that the OnePlus X will be available to purchase without an invite on Tuesday and every Tuesday after that. This comes not long after OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 2 was going completely invite-free in celebration of the company’s birthday on December 17.
Consumers previously would need an invite to pick up a OnePlus X, and still will every other day of the week. However, Tuesdays have become the day that everyone can pick up the OnePlus X, in an effort to encourage more sales.
As a quick refresher, the OnePlus X sports a 5-inch Full HD display, a 2,3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, an Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal memory, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, an 8-megapixel front-camera, and a 2,525mAh battery. At just $249 in the US, that’s some value that’s hard to pass up. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the OnePlus X has some connectivity issues in the US, particularly in suburbs, rural areas, and dense buildings.
OnePlus says that open sales will officially kick off at 4pm Pacific Time.
