It would seem fitting for a chorus of angels to come down and sing the hallelujah chorus right about now. OnePlus has announced that the OnePlus One will be available for pre-order without invites beginning next Monday, October 27 at 11:00AM EST. This system has been a long time in the coming, after months and months of increasingly convoluted invite systems. Now, interested customers will be able to simply place a pre-order and get the device.
Unfortunately, OnePlus has yet to confirm when the pre-orders will actually ship. But from what it looks like, you’ll get an estimated shipping time when you place a pre-order. Payment for shipments will only be accepted through PayPal and device pre-orders are limited to two per customer. Additionally, if you get an invite after submitting a pre-order, you can use it to skip to the top of the pre-order queue and get your device in advance of the other pre-orders.
In short, this new system is nearly as confusing as the last few, though this is the closest thing that we’ve seen to the OnePlus One being available to the general public. If you’d like to pre-order, you can do so on October 27. As an added bonus, all accessories will be sold with a celebratory discount when added to your OnePlus One pre-order.
