The OnePlus is still quite hard to get a hold of for those Android fans wanting to get a high-end phone at a low-end price. Last month OnePlus announced they would open up pre-orders at the end of this month, and today we’ve gotten more details on when and for how long.
Pre-orders will open on Monday, the 27th of October and you’ll be able to pre-order your phone during a one-hour window. Then it’s back to the invite system. Starting today, OnePlus will let you add the One to a shopping cart which you can save and arrange the phone how you would like it, once pre-orders open you can then submit your order, with hopefully no fuss. Of course if you receive an invite in the meantime you can still skip the queue.
Orders will open on October 27th at 15:00 GMT – that’s 2am Tuesday the 28th of October AEST. As part of the sale, OnePlus are also dropping the price of their accessories for a week, with the newly announced JBL Earphones down from US$39 to US$24.99.
Remember orders will have to be placed in another country such as the US and you’ll have to use a shipping forwarder such as ComGateway or Shipito to get your phone and accessories to your door at an additional cost. Orders are limited to two devices and payment is via PayPal, any other considerations are up to you so make sure you read all the fine print.
We’re still along way of general availability of the OnePlus One, but hopefully if you’ve been patiently waiting this will solve your issue.
Are you going to be ordering a OnePlus One next week?
