OnePlus 3 will be sold Invite Free: About Damn Time!
OnePlus just made the best announcement two years in the making.
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.
With the OnePlus 3, we’re officially saying goodbye to invites. It’s a big step for us as a company, our fans, and fellow tech enthusiasts. After sending out millions of invites over the past two years, it’s hard to not think back to the early days and how far we’ve come. We’re proud to have reached a point where we feel confident in making our new device available without invites from day one.
We’re excited to invite you to our Loop VR experience for the official launch of the OnePlus 3 on June 14, make sure you don’t miss out on the grand unveiling. The doors to the Loop will open at 12:30 PM Eastern Time. During the first two and a half hours of the launch, our new flagship device will be available exclusively in the Loop, which doubles as the world’s first VR store. Open sales for the OnePlus 3 will begin on our website, OnePlus.net, at 03:00 PM Eastern Time.
