Here’s a surprising news for the OnePlus fans! OnePlus has just dropped the Invite System. The company OnePlus claims to be done with the ‘Invite System’ forever. It means that you will be able to buy the phone on the launch date itself. Talking about the launch date, OnePlus has confirmed the launch event for OnePlus 3 to be June 14, 12:30PM Eastern Time. Do note that the dates for availability/shipping are still unclear. The launch event of the OnePlus is said to be quite creative. The event will take place in a virtual headquarters that are situated in the deep outer space. You would require a VR Headset to properly view and enjoy the event live. OnePlus recently gave free OnePlus Loop VR Headsets to its customers to invite them to the world’s first global shopping experience in VR. If you already have a VR headset, you can download The Loop App from the PlayStore to view the event on June 14th. Till then here is a promo video by OnePlus showing off their mind-boggling headquarters.
For anyone interested, here is the official statement from the OnePlus.
We’re releasing the OnePlus 3 invite-free, right from launch day. In addition, invites are gone forever from future OnePlus product launches.
The invite system has a special place in our history. When we first started out, our team was incredibly small. We had no idea what the demand of the OnePlus One would look like. We also weren’t fans of flash sales, where there’s a risk of everything selling out immediately, forcing fans to wait indefinitely. To address this, we designed the invite system to give customers a chance to purchase a phone as soon as we had inventory ready.
We think OnePlus did an awesome job of ditching the invite system. Now anyone can buy their products any day or anytime. Let us know if you are getting yourself a OnePlus 3.
