The launch of self-proclaimed “2016 flagship killer”, OnePlus 2 is around the corner. It would be the world’s first product launch in virtual reality. You can now download its official VR App from the play store. Though, it is not a must for you to use Google cardboard for the same, but the experience would be immersive if you do.
The invites are still necessary but company promises that they took “feedback to heart and are introducing a few key improvements to the purchase experience”. According to company’s blog post, they will have 30-50x more inventory than last year.
Post says “Our early and most fervent supporters will be prioritised, those of you who have helped us spread the word and grow OnePlus from an unknown company to where we are today”. ”Specifically, I’m talking about phone smashers, early forum members, early purchasers and the most active OnePlus One invite evangelists. We want to show you our gratitude by offering you some of the first invites to purchase the OnePlus 2.”
OnePlus 2 invite system is now live.
One of the ways to get an invite is from your friends who have already purchased a OnePlus 2. Other way is to participate in contests and promotional activities on social media. OnePlus says “for notifications about our contests and invites, subscribe to our newsletter, join our community on the forums, or follow us on social media”. Additionally there’s a reservation list you can sign up for. If you get lucky, you might get one of those invites.
Once you get an invite, you need to claim it in your account. Validity for invites might vary, but mostly the invites stay active for a period of 24hrs. But, one would have one-two weeks to share the invite with friends and family.
With regard to the features of OnePlus 2, blog says “a powerful 64-bit processor, USB Type-C with our patented cable, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and a fingerprint sensor faster than the iPhone. Other things we haven’t spoken about, such as our ROM, OxygenOS, are equally pioneering. It comes with features that won’t be available on other devices until Android M”.
Other features of OnePlus 2 will be unveiled during the launch on 27th July.
