OnePlus have stated it will be easier to purchase their new device through a mixture of invites and open sales.
In a blog post CEO Carl Pei said OnePlus acknowledges the criticism and complaints received over their invite system. Which is in place to fulfil demand accurately and keep costs low.
For the first month of the OnePlus X release, the good old invite system will be in place. It will be the only way to purchase the device and loyal customers will be given priority.
“We’ll distribute invites much faster to our most loyal users, those who sign up for the reservation list, and shareables for your family and friends” Pei wrote.
The second month will please fans as Pei announced that the OnePlus X will have weekly open sales, meaning you can purchase the device as soon as it’s announced. No dates have been confirmed for the open sales, nor has it been confirmed how many times a week the open sales will happen. The best thing to do is to keep track of OnePlus’ social media pages.
