The OnePlus 2 has seen significant demand since the device was unveiled in late July. In spite of receiving some criticism for missing features like NFC or Quick Charge, the device has generated significant attention and the reservation list currently exceeds over three million reservations. As such, it does look like the OnePlus 2 is going to be a big seller once it finally becomes available to buy from tomorrow. However, there is still one prevailing issue with buying a OnePlus 2 and that is that you will once again need an invite to do so. In fact, the three million reservations that have already been made are only reservations to receive an invite and not actually to buy the device. As such, some people are likely to face somewhat of a wait to finally receive an invite and subsequently be able to buy the OnePlus 2.
Well, a new website has launched today dubbed MyOnePlus and this site is designed to offer those who want to buy the OnePlus 2 without having to go through the notorious invite system, an option to do so. The company does not provide any exact details on their stock levels or even how they are sidestepping the invite system, but are claiming to offer those interested an easier way to buy the device. In fact, according to the homepage, “Buying a phone should be simple, so that’s what we did” and also states that there are no hidden additional aspects than simply handing over you money “No invites, no trickery, no social media sharing.”
Speaking of which, if you do opt to try the website out, the cost of the OnePlus 2 through MyOnePlus does seem to be significantly higher than through OnePlus with an invite. The starting price for the 16GB model is $499 while the starting price for the 64GB model starts from $549. This is significantly higher than the $329 and $389 prices being offered directly from OnePlus. Of course, if going through the invite system is something you wish to avoid, then maybe it is worth paying a premium price. MyOnePlus does note that they are not affiliated in any way with OnePlus, however, if you are interested in finding out more than you can by hitting the source link below.
