Right since OnePlus first came out with the One in the middle of 2014, you’ve been required to be in possession of an ‘invite’ to be able to purchase any of their phones.
This applies to the OnePlus 2 as well, which as the name suggests is OnePlus’ only second phone. These invites can be had via contests, forum activity, etc., and up until now you’d have 24 hours to claim the invite that’s sent to you.
OnePlus have now changed their policies and are now a lot more relaxed with the invites… not only are they being issued in a larger scale, but the time to claim OnePlus 2 invites has also been tripled to three days now.
So, if you lost out on getting a OnePlus phone due to the short nature of the invite validity, this might be a good news for you.
In other news, OnePlus is all set to announce its third phone in three days’ time on the 29th at simultaneous events across the globe.
