OnePlus promised we’d get a 1 hour sales event for the OnePlus 2 after they were slow to get invites for the phone rolling out, and they’ve followed through with details on that. We now know it’ll happen October 12th, and here are the times you can expect to get in on it for each region:
- Asia: 12:00-13:00 HKT
- Europe: 12:00-13:00 CEST
- North America: 12:00-1:00 pm PDT
- India: 12:00-1:00 pm IST (India’s event will happen exclusively on Amazon, so simply add the phone to your cart and checkout during the 1-hour period listed here.)
Note that the sales times will only apply for your region. If you’re in North America, you won’t be able to order during Europe’s designated sales window. Makes sense.
Folks can buy up to 2 phones per order, though you can make as many orders as you want, apparently. Shipping times will also be varied, so OnePlus will give you an estimated shipping date when you go through checkout. As usual, those with invites can skip the line and get their shipment sooner than anyone else, so be sure to get yours that way if you’re fortunate enough to have one.
With that, OnePlus has also started teasing an October 12th announcement. The company’s co-founder and CEO went to Weibo with this image:
It’s a fitness app, and it’s showing a map with an interesting series of running routes drawn over an intersection. It’s either the most boring series of routes ever known to man, or a deliberate attempt to create an “X”.
We’ll opt to go with the latter, especially since their second 2015 phone is rumored to be named the OnePlus X. This phone has been in the rumor mill as of late, boasting decent specs for a $250 price tag. Highlights would include a 5-inch display, Snapdragon 801 chipset, and even the inclusion of NFC (which the more expensive OnePlus 2 can’t even boast). Of course, those are just rumors so we’ll have to wait for official word before we know how accurate they are.
