OnePlus’ first non-‘flagship killer’ phone, i.e., the OnePlus X is set to go invite free in India.
OnePlus phones launch with a peculiar-yet-successful invite model, which requires buyers to have ‘invites’ in order to purchase phones.
However, after a certain period on the market, OnePlus usually make their phones invite free. The OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2 have received similar treatment prior to the OnePlus X.
Coming back to the announcement, according to OnePlus the X will go invite-free starting midnight tonight, i.e., at 00:00 hours, February 5th in India tonight.
What OnePlus have to say about this:
The invite system has been crucial to letting us scale our operations and has given our fans a unique way to share our brand story with the people in their lives. It has been our constant endeavour to enhance the smartphone experience for all of you in taking risks by pushing ourselves and showing real improvements. That’s why we’re making the OnePlus X invite-free, forever, for a more cheerful buying experience.
