OnePlus One to Hold Open, Invite-less Sale on Amazon India
Despite being launched in the first half of 2014, the “flagship killer” OnePlus One only made its way to India towards the end of last year, launching as an Amazon India exclusive product in December. The device was met with an overwhelming response – similar to that of the global launch – driven by its high-end specs and aggressive pricing, and as a result, OnePlus reimplemented the invite-only purchase system, which required potential buyers to have an India-specific invite to buy the phone, which could be obtained by applying for one or participating in contests on their forum.
This week marked the 10th week since the launch, and to celebrate a fabulous response in the time since then, OnePlus and Amazon India have declared that an open sale will be held to buy the One, during which buyers will not need an invite. The sale is scheduled to begin at 10AM IST (that’s GMT+5:30) on February 10th on Amazon India, and is expected to sell out quickly, so get ready to start hitting the refresh button at 9:59AM on that morning.
