OnePlus One orders take major step forward: recurring no-invite sales
Overnight, we shared with you some of the latest news about the improving state of OnePlus One availability, with an upcoming window where shoppers in India would be able to purchase the Android smartphone without needing an invite – the ordering system that has long plagued the One’s release. As it turns out, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, and we’re looking forward to an ongoing opportunity for users the world around to get a no-invite-needed OnePlus One.
Here’s how this is going to work: starting tomorrow, and happening again every Tuesday from here on out, OnePlus will sell the One without an invite – just order and pay. These open sales will run for a full 24 hours (starting at the stroke of midnight Pacific time – 8am GMT), and then return six days later. From Wednesday through Monday, OnePlus goes back to requiring invites, but every Tuesday will bring back these wide-open sales.
This may still fall short of the order-whenever-you-like method by which most phones are sold, but these regular, consistent no-invite Tuesdays are a huge step forward from the unpredictable limited-time open-sales events of months past.
