There are few devices which really grab the public’s attention each year. One of them that did catch the attention of the market this year, was the OnePlus 2. This is not that surprising though as if truth be told, it was the OnePlus One which really caught the attention of the market last year and as the OnePlus 2 was the natural successor, the market was always going to be watching to see if the company could repeat the feat achieved by the OnePlus One.
When the OnePlus 2 was announced, it came with a number of specs that many had already known about, but also came with the confirmation that you would need an invite to buy. Since then, invites have been rolling out and those lucky enough to get an invite have been able to purchase. For everyone else, the wait for an invite goes on. Well, Thanksgiving is virtually upon us and in the spirit of giving, OnePlus has opted to open sales for the Thanksgiving weekend. According to the various announcements on social media, those looking to pick up the OnePlus 2 invite free, can do so starting from Black Friday (November 27th) and sales will remain open until November 30th. It is also worth pointing out that the promotion image for the open sales (shown above) does also make reference to ‘Holiday Deals’ along with the open sales. As such, it should be expected that there will be some additional deals available on some of the OnePlus accessories, although the company has yet to confirm any of these additional deal details yet.
If you need a quick reminder on the specs, the OnePlus 2 comes in two different variants which differ in terms of RAM and storage. One option comes with 3GB and 16GB storage, while the other comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Both variants comes with a 5.5-inch display which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution, both come with a 13-megapixel rear camera, along with a 5-megapixel front facing camera. Both come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, running on a 3,300 mAh battery and making use of Oxygen OS which is based off Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
