As part of its “New Year, New Gear” promotion, OnePlus is giving would-be One owners the chance to pre-order the device without an invite. Festivities have already kicked of overseas, but if you’re here in the U.S., you still have a chance to get your hands on one of the best devices on the market. No, really, the OnePlus One (ancient by tech standards) is still a terrific flagship that’s made even better thanks to its affordable price. Now the pesky invite system is being blown wide open.
Like previous pre-order offers, the window will only be open for a limited time. In North America, users will have a two-hour window between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST. Pre-orders for those in Hong Kong/Taiwan and Europe have already come and gone, so I hope you were paying attention.
Both the 16GB Silk White ($299) and 64GB Sandstone Black models ($349) will be available; if you have the extra dough, I’d highly recommend the Sandstone Black model. All that’s required of you is to visit OnePlus’s site during the designated time, and you’ll be able to order your device of choice without an invite. Get cracking if you want to see why the OnePlus One is still one of our favorites.
As of this writing, it seems as though OnePlus’s site isn’t handling the traffic very well. Good luck!
