This week, OnePlus made an announcement stating that its OnePlus 2 smartphone will get a ‘new and improved’ invite system. The company said on the blog that, “some people thought it was too difficult and time consuming to obtain an invite or thought it was all some big marketing stunt.” For this reason, a few key improvements to the purchase experience has been made.
The new smartphone will be unveiled officially on 27 July via the world’s first VR product launch.
