The hype created by OnePlus prior to the launch of its 2 smartphone has worked in its favor, even as the device has piqued the interest of more than a million people from around the world. These folks have signed themselves up for the handset’s reservation list that will provide them with an invite if it’s left unused by someone else.
It’ll sure be hard for OnePlus to find rejected invites for such a large crowd, but let’s see how things progress over the course of time. Eager buyers can also sign up for getting invites directly by participating in the company’s contests and promotions that are run on its social pages. Moreover, someone who actually buys the device will be allowed to provide an invite to one other person as well.
The OnePlus 2 was unveiled by the company only a few days ago as the ‘2016 flagship killer.’ Although it’s far from that, considering its lack of a 2K display, NFC, wireless charging support and other compromises, it really does sound like a great smartphone for its price points of $329 or Rs 22999 (16GB) and $389 or Rs 24999 (64GB).
It’s a future-proof device thanks to its inclusion of the USB Type-C port. Furthermore, it runs the company’s very own Oxygen OS which is very close to the stock Android experience yet contains several unique features. The OnePlus 2 carries onboard a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD display and runs on the 64-bit octa core Snapdragon 810 processor.
