Last month, OnePlus took its first stab at no-invite-required pre-orders for its One smartphone, giving shoppers a few hours in which they could get on the list to receive one of these still a bit hard-to-get handsets. Shortly thereafter, the company shared its plans for the next round of pre-orders, scheduled to commence one week from today, on November 17. As OnePlus gets its ducks in a row for this new pre-order opportunity, it’s taking a moment to clarify some details.
The big question we’ve been wondering about is how long this new round of pre-orders might be open. Remember, the original plan was to have the window open for one hour, but last time we saw OnePlus extend things to three hours at the last minute. And now with this recent talk about how the manufacturer wants to hit this very lofty one-million-phone sales goal by the end of the year, we were curious if future pre-order events might be open for a similarly long (if not longer) length of time.
But nope: next Monday OnePlus One pre-orders will be open for a single hour, beginning at 11am Eastern (8am Pacific, 4pm GMT).
All the other details remain in place from last time, including the right to cancel your pre-order so long as it hasn’t shipped yet, and the ability to upgrade pre-orders to first-in-line regular orders after the fact, should you come across an invite code.
Anyone planning to snag this guy next Monday?
