While the OnePlus One invite system will remain the standard route for being able to purchase the device, OnePlus has taken a big first step to more wide-spread availability. The company has announced that the phone will be available via open sale periods every single Tuesday from here on out, beginning tomorrow.
The sale period lasts a whopping 24 hours — a big jump from the usual 2-hour window these typically have — and begins at midnight Pacific (that’s 8am for you folks in London). What’s more is that even those who buy the phone during the open sale will receive an invite to dish out to a friend who wants to buy one.
It’s quite funny that OnePlus considers their invite system “beloved” when it’s been one of the main annoyances attached to the device, but with weekly opportunities to snag one it should be a lot less frustrating for those who haven’t been lucky enough to secure an invite. Let us know if you’ll finally be looking to buy a OnePlus One now that you won’t have to put up with any hijinks.
