You won't have to get an invite to buy the OnePlus 3

One of the biggest hurdles that always plagued OnePlus smartphones is gone. The OnePlus 3 will be available on open sale from day one.

Ever since OnePlus entered the smartphone market a couple of years ago, the company had differentiated itself from others with the unique invite-only system for selling its smartphones. However, it turned out to be quite annoying for many users as they had to wait for an invite and unable to buy the smartphone. To address those issues, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has announced that the OnePlus 3 will be available invite-free, right from the launch date.

We re releasing the OnePlus 3 invite-free, right from launch day. In addition, invites are gone forever from future OnePlus product launches. With the OnePlus 3, we re officially saying goodbye to invites. It s a big step for us as a company, our fans, and fellow tech enthusiasts. We re proud to have reached a point where we feel confident in making our new device available without invites from day one Pei wrote in a blog post.

The invite system enabled OnePlus to better match demand and supply and ensured it wasn’t left with a lot of unsold inventory in the channel. It also let them have a relatively lean production line and create hype for its smartphones, which were difficult to buy. However, doing away with the invite system suggests that OnePlus has not only ramped up its production but is also bullish about the success of the OnePlus 3.

The OnePlus 3 is set to launch on June 15 in China, and the event is set to kick off at at 7.30AM IST. The launch will be live streamed in virtual reality from its newly created virtual space station called The Loop . Additionally, the company also unveiled its new its Loop VR headset which it built along with ANTVR. The Loop VR headset will be offered via an app only sale on June 3 and June 7 at 12PM IST Re 1 via Amazon India (shipping charges extra).

The invite-system is not the only thing ditched by the Chinese handset maker. While the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 had sandstone finish at the back, the OnePlus 3 will come with full metal unibody design. We have seen the leaked photos and press renders, and the back of the smartphone look similar to the HTC One M9.

OnePlus 3 specifications, features: The smartphone was recently spotted on FCC and TENAA certification sites, which revealed its specifications and features. Based on the listing, the smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch fill HD (1080p) display, Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 quad-core SoC, paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage.

Other features such as a 16-megapixel rear and 8-megpaixel front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh non-removable battery with Dash Charge feature and connectivity options such as 4G LTE with VoLTE support, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11ac are likely to be in tow. On the software front, the OnePlus 3 will most likely run Android Marshmallow based OxygenOS.

With no pricing and availability details at the moment, we expect to learn more as the launch event draws closer.
