OnePlus has announced that it will not be doing the invite system for the OnePlus 3. That's right, you won't need to wait to be invited to spend your money on the phone this time around, you can purchase it as you want when you want. The company is set to debut the phone on June 14, which is just two short weeks away.
We're releasing the OnePlus 3 invite-free, right from launch day. In addition, invites are gone forever from future OnePlus product launches.
The invite system has a special place in our history. When we first started out, our team was incredibly small. We had no idea what the demand of the OnePlus One would look like. We also weren't fans of flash sales, where there's a risk of everything selling out immediately, forcing fans to wait indefinitely. To address this, we designed the invite system to give customers a chance to purchase a phone as soon as we had inventory ready.
