That’s the deal with the OnePlus 5 and its official registration page at JD.com that currently stands at 363750 reservations and… rising. Note also that these numbers are just for the JD.com reservations and they don’t include similar promotions from other retailer stores all over China.

Remember the phone hasn’t been unveiled officially yet, as this is expected to happen next Tuesday (June 20) in various events all over the world from New York, to Beijing and India.If these numbers continue to rise then they may even surpass 1 million in the end, proving that “hype” over a smartphone can be a very powerful motive.

Let’s wait a few more days and see what happens…
