OnePlus 2 Release: What Buyers Need to Know

The exciting new OnePlus smartphone is officially available in multiple regions around the globe starting today. Late last month the company formally announced its second smartphone ever, the OnePlus 2, and after a soft launch in China the phone is officially on sale starting today, August 11th.

However, while today is technically the release date for the famous new OnePlus 2 smartphone, there are a few details buyers need to be aware of. One being it was recently delayed by 2-3 weeks in the United States, there’s an invite system, or wait list, and much more.

After tons of rumors, small leaks, and teasers by OnePlus themselves, the OnePlus 2 was revealed on July 27th. The smartphone brings top-tier specs and some fancy customization and unique textures on the back, along with much more all for a low price. The invite system, similar to pre-orders, reached numbers over 2 million, and the smartphone is poised for a big launch, as long as the company is able to keep up with supply and demand.

So far initial impressions and hands-on reviews around the web seem extremely positive about the device, aside from a few complaints about the USB charging port and lack of NFC, the phone has been well received.

Using an invite system similar to what the company did last year, buyers will be able to buy the OnePlus 2 right now, today. Well, sort of. Last year there wasn’t nearly enough stock to go around, and they were out of inventory for months at a time. This year they promised a new and improved invite system, and here’s all the OnePlus 2 release date details for potential buyers.

OnePlus 2 Release Date

As we mentioned above the original OnePlus One struggled when it came to a release date, and we were told that wouldn't be the case this year. However, things are already off to a bad start.

The all-new OnePlus 2 is available starting today, August 11th in North America, Europe, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan, and more. They also have a much improved invite system, which can be found at the OnePlus.net site.

The company promises a very smooth release date, rather than a 4-5 month wait like last year. It remains to be seen how well the company will handle the release, but the phone went on sale today, and has already been delayed 2-3 weeks, so they aren't off to a good start after all the hype.
