Customers can get the OnePlus One smartphone today without requiring a formal invite. This is a promotion specific to Black Friday, so OnePlus will revert back to its standard invite only policy starting tomorrow. This step appears to have been taken by the company in order to move sales of the smartphone which has been diminishing since the invite system wasn’t well received by the public. And although the smartphone was briefly available on pre-order, there were still plenty of customers who were left out.
OnePlus is including both the 16GB Silk White and the 64GB Sandstone Black models for $299 and $349 respectively. The 16GB model will reportedly ship in 10 business days while the White model could take somewhere near 5 days to ship. Actual arrival might differ depending on your location.
This new promotion gives ample opportunity for customers to purchase the OnePlus One without having to rely on invites or a short pre-order window. Of course, availability is dependent on the stocks available at the time, so don’t get your hopes up until you check for the smartphone’s availability.
