OnePlus One ditches invite-only system for a few hours

Normally, to get the OnePlus One, you’d need to be dependent on OnePlus’ invite-only system. However, OnePlus announced that, starting tomorrow, January 20, and for a short time only, anyone can purchase the smartphone without an invite.

While the invite system has been dropped for a short time in the past, tomorrow’s window of opportunity grants you the ability to outright purchase the OnePlus One instead of placing a pre-order. You can pick up the 16GB Silk White version for $300 or the 64GB Sandstone Black variant for $350.

No matter where you are, you’ll only have a two-hour window to purchase the handset. Here in North America, you’ll have from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST, while those in Europe and Hong Kong have from 19:00 to 21:00 GMT and 19:00 to 21:00 HKT, respectively. Unlike before, there won’t be any discounts on accessories you might want to grab alongside the OnePlus One.

Even though rumors about the OnePlus Two are flaring up, the OnePlus One can still stand on its own just fine. While our review revealed the handset having a litany of bugs, updates since then have hopefully squashed a good number of them. Besides, the fast processor and other great specs you get with the OnePlus One, especially for the price, is something that can’t be overlooked.
