In the months following the launch of the OnePlus One, we occasionally saw OnePlus remove its invitation-only buying method and make the One available to all. Now OnePlus is doing the same with the OnePlus 2.
On October 12, the OnePlus 2 will be available to everyone without an invitation. OnePlus will hold open sales at four different times in four time zones to ensure everyone is able to buy the OnePlus 2 at a reasonable hour. Here are the times during which the OnePlus 2’s open sales will take place:
Asia: 12:00-13:00 HKT
Europe: 12:00-13:00 CEST
North America: 12:00-1:00 pm PDT
India: 12:00-1:00 pm IST
It’s worth noting that shoppers in India will need to head to Amazon.in to buy their OnePlus 2. Consumers in other regions can buy from OnePlus’s website.
The OnePlus 2 launch hasn’t gone totally smoothly. There were millions in OnePlus’s reservation line following the phone’s release in August, and OnePlus later apologized for messing up the launch of its new phone. It’d be nice if OnePlus made up for these issues by making the OnePlus 2 permanently available to everyone, but that’s unlikely to happen until some time next year. At least we’ve got a few days to prepare for the first open sales of the OnePlus 2.
Are any of you going to try and snag a OnePlus 2 on Monday?
