When it came out earlier this year, we said that the OnePlus 2 is a great phone with an invite problem: you can only spend your money on OnePlus’s phone if you have an invite to do so. It’s a dumb system, and starting tomorrow, it will finally die.
In a blog post, OnePlus has announced that the phone will be invite-free starting December 5th. Given that the 2 only came out earlier this year, that means it’s become invite-free far faster than the OnePlus One. The company is framing it as a real achievement for them; in reality, it’s probably an attempt to sell more phones faster. But either way, a great phone just got a bunch easier to buy.
