With well over two million people waiting to receive a OnePlus 2 invite through the official international channels many of you will be looking at Chinese resellers to get your 2016 flagship killer. Here are stores that we can recommend you buy the OnePlus 2 without an invite.
Why these stores?
- You must be asking why we have posted links to these stores and not others? Well the simple reason is that they have agreed to send us a OnePlus 2 review phone and have given us the DHL tracking numbers for the phone. To us this classes as pretty good proof that they managed to get stock this past Monday and that phones are on the way.
So should I order my OnePlus 2 right now?
- To be on the safe side I would say wait until next week when the orders arrive so we can be sure that we were sent the OnePlus 2 as promised. Of course shop.gizchina.com can be trusted and the store is offering a free tempered glass protector with OP2 orders.
Will this version of the OnePlus 2 work with my network provider?
- Remember that these versions of the OnePlus 2 are the Chinese version of the phone and will only have 3 x FDD-LTE bands, where as the true international model boasts 6. You, should check that the Chinese version of the OP2 works with your mobile network provider before ordering.
Are there other stores I can trust?
- Yes, and as soon as we find them we will add them to this list. Keep posted.
7 Stores you can buy the OnePlus 2 without an invite
We’re sure that there will be more stores offering the OP2 and once we are 100% sure that they have stock and can be trusted we will consider adding them to this or another list.
Of course we are going to mention our own affiliated store and why not. We are working with this team because we trust them and we trust them to ship OnePlus 2 phones as soon as they are made available.
The GizChina shop warehouse in China has stock of the OnePlus 2 available to buy right now, and ordering now will mean you also get a free tempered glass screen protector. Stock will also be available from the EU warehouse as soon as possible. Stocks are limited, so act fast.
Giztop have stock of the 64GB OnePlus 2 in stock at their Chinese warehouse now. Like other resellers only the black version of the OP2 is available at this time and quantities are limited!
UU Online Shop
UU Online Shop are a new company to us, but they have sent us order confirmation details from OnePlus.cn and a DHL tracking number for our review phone. The company say that they have already sold 100 OP2 phones and will be ordering more through their Chinese channels ASAP.
Still you must be careful before ordering from a new store. We would recommend waiting for our review phone to arrive to be 100% certain, but so far they seem legit and our OP2 should arrive next week (depending on how DHL are feeling).
