A day before the launch event, OnePlus kick started a reservation system for people to queue up to get an OnePlus 2 invite. The company had earlier revealed that it had tweaked its invite system by introducing this reservation system. At the time of filing this story, the number of interested buyers wanting to get their hands on an invite had crossed 870,000, and is nearing the one million mark.

While not everyone in this queue is likely to buy the OnePlus 2, if the company manages to sell to a majority of these people, it will still be an impressive feat. Before the launch, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei had revealed that in one year, the company had managed to sell 1.5 million OnePlus One smartphones.
To recap, the OnePlus 2 was launched in two variants 16GB for Rs 22,999, and 64GB for Rs 24,999. The 64GB variant will go on sale in India exclusively via Amazon India on August 11. The 16GB variant, on the other hand, will be launched on a later date.
As far as specifications are concerned, the flagship features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The 16GB variant though will feature 3GB of RAM.
It also features a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,300mAh battery, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Android Lollipop-based Oxygen OS.
