6 Third-Party E-tailers Offering OnePlus 2 Without an Invitation
The Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus launched their next-gen “2016 flagship killer” on 13 August. Like the last year’s flagship, the company has made it mandatory for the potential OnePlus 2 buyers to register on the company’s official reservation list and procure an invite to purchase the smartphone.
At the moment, there’s a 3.7-million long queue of people waiting to grab their invitations. Luckily, for those who are not willing to wait in line, OnePlus 2 is now available online without an invite.
The third-party e-tailers are offering the phone; however, on the downside they’re selling it at a higher price – around $30 to $90 more than what the OnePlus 2 costs officially. Further, their warranty terms and conditions might differ from those offered by the company.
Here are the 6 third-party e-tailers currently offering OnePlus 2 without an invitation:
1. OppoMart: The trusted Chinese e-tailer is currently selling the base OnePlus 2 model at a fair price with a bonus free worldwide shipping. A 16GB (3GB of RAM) OnePlus 2 is available for $359, while the 64GB (4GB of RAM) variant of the handset costs an additional $100.
2. PandaWill: The e-tailer has listed the the 64GB version of OnePlus 2 at $479.99. PandaWill also claims to ship the handset, free of cost, worldwide.
