It’s usually fairly difficult to get hold of OnePlus products. That isn’t because they cost a lot, but because the inventory is maintained in a reactive manner, i.e., the demand has to first be there for the company to react by producing more of their gadgets.
The OnePlus 2 is the newest OnePlus phone (which won’t be for long, it appears), which usually requires buyers to have an ‘invite’ if they wish to purchase the phone. For a limited time, OnePlus is offering its flagship phone invite-free (i.e., in an ‘open sale’) in the Indian market.
The first of these open sales starts at 12PM IST (GMT +5:30) today, i.e. on the 12th of October. The phone is 24,999 INR (US$386) in the country, and can only be bought via Amazon.in. The second open sale is scheduled for 8AM tomorrow, as you can see from the press image right at the bottom of this article

The OnePlus 2 is what the company calls a flagship killer for this year. The phone has a Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3/4GB RAM, 16/64GB storage, 13 mega-pixel laser autofocus camera, 3300Ah battery and a 5.5-inch FHD screen.
However, the OnePlus 2 has failed to recreate the kind of effect the OnePlus One had around the middle of 2014. You can read our review of the OnePlus 2 here.
