Looking to buy the OnePlus 2? You better get in line.
OnePlus on Saturday opened up invites for its upcoming flagship, allowing people to enter a queue (that’s getting quite long) before the handset officially gets unveiled on Monday.

The OnePlus 2 will get a formal VR announcement on Monday—you can already download the app that will stream the event.
If you don’t hop on the invite list, folks who buy the device should get golden tickets to bump their friends and family to the front of the line. Either way, you should have ample opportunity to pick the device up.
