“We’re extremely excited to be making the OnePlus X invite-free more quickly this time around. With every device we release, we grow more mature and more adept at handling the demands and expectations of our community. We largely owe our success to your unrelenting support, so we hope that this development will make the process of purchasing your very own OnePlus X as smooth and effortless as it can possibly be.”
OnePlus started the invite only system with the One, which was launched two years ago. It was a success at first, as it created insane demand, but with the announcement of OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X, things changed. People wanted just to buy the smartphone and not wait in line; the company received a lot of backlash from customers. They finally started selling the One invite-free after a year.
Ever since then, OnePlus made sure that after a while, customers could buy the phone without an invite. The time frame for having the device available only on an invite, to making it possible invite free, kept on decreasing. With the OnePlus 2, the device was available without an invite four months after its release.
The OnePlus X was released in November last year, and it has taken the company less time than before, to make it invite-free. The device has a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera and 2525 mAh battery. It has a premium feel thanks to the metal frame and glass back.
You can now buy OnePlus X without an invite from OnePlus and other online retailers. If it’s not available invite free yet in your country, don’t worry, it will be soon. The company also started rolling out OxygenOS 2.2.0 update for the device recently.
