OnePlus has done away with invite for its both 16GB and 64Gb variants of the OnePlus One phones beginning April 20 on Amazon. There is no need to pre-register, said the company, which was supposed to announce bigger news today but somehow it was stalled at the last minute.
OnePlus One specifications were of high-end with a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080P display, 13MP camera with F2.0 aperture and Sony image sensor, 5MP front camera, 3100mAh battery, 4G-support and and NFC. It runs CyanogenMod 12S, a custom aftermarket version of Android developed by Cyanogen but now OnePlus has rolled out its own Oxygen OS, tweked version of Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Carl Pei, head of OnePlus, said, “By rigorously testing and improving our logistical structure over the last one year, we are far more confident that our processes have matured enough for us to handle the increased production and after-sales support that comes along with opening up sales. It’s what we’ve been working towards, and now we’re ready.”
“This current shift from an invite system to a non-invite system is a big step, one from which we will learn a great deal before the OnePlus 2 launch, with invites, in the third quarter of this year”, he said.
The company is also offering 50% discount on accessories with OnePlus One until April 23, 2015.
