OnePlus held their official event earlier in the week on Monday July 27th, and it was unclear how well the device would be received. After months and months of preparation and working to build the next great device as well as their second flagship handset, or rather second smartphone altogether, despite what was starting to sound like an exciting follow up to their first phone last year, OnePlus naturally had doubts about whether or not they would live up to their fans expectations for the new phone. Just like last year’s device, the OnePlus 2 will require users to have an invite to purchase the handset, and OnePlus just today announced that in the short time of 72 hours they have surpassed 1 million reservations to receive an invite for the ability to purchase the device.
1 million reservations may not sound like much, but when compared to the number of OnePlus devices which have sold since it launched last year which sits at 1.5 million units, 1 million reservation in less than three days shows that the community is quite interested in the OnePlus 2. Whether or not all 1 million reservations purchase the phone immediately is uncertain, and there’s no telling how long it will take OnePlus to send out that many invites to fulfill that many units. Nevertheless saying that excitement is high for the OnePlus 2 would be an understatement. Earlier this morning OnePlus was nearing the 1 million mark, and it didn’t take long for them to reach it. For OnePlus, the launch of their sophomore device and seeing the enthusiastic interest of those wishing to get their hands on the OnePlus 2 displays their commitment to continue bringing consumers a high quality handset for relatively little cost compared to the other top tier phones.
