OnePlus 2 Goes On Its First Sale Today Exclusively on Amazon India
After the OnePlus 2 was launched earlier this month, we saw a total of 2 million reservations for the device. Though the company did not mention how many invites were sent out, we are sure to see some happy-go-lucky faces today. Yes, the OnePlus 2 sale will start from today, 4 pm onwards, only on Amazon India. India is the first market where the device will be launched.
This sale is valid only for customers who have got the valid invites. These customers will be able to claim their invite in their respective OnePlus accounts.
OnePlus have categorized their customers into two principles:
- Those who have actively participated and registered for pop-up stores and fan meets, early purchasers and the most active OnePlus One evangelist. OnePlus wishes to return the favour by offering the above-categorized people with the first invites to purchase the OnePlus 2.
- For all the others, there will be a series of competition where the participants will win an invite. You will need to stay tuned to the forums and social media for related information.
The OnePlus blog has also stated that they will be creating a reservation list so that invite-holders who did not get hold of the OnePlus 2 will be given priority.
OnePlus 2 feels lightweight, thanks to the manufacturer’s decision to use an aluminium alloy body. It has a 5.5-inch display and comes with the Sandstone Black back cover. The back panel can be easily customised using OnePlus’ StyleSwap covers available in four variants – Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood, and Kevlar. The covers can be swapped without any hassle, but it still takes some effort to remove the cover.
The OnePlus 2 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core 64-bit processor with 4GB of RAM. The processor is capable of 4K streaming, which is a shame because the display is limited to 1080p resolution. The display is bright though, which makes the 1080p resolution enough for a 5.5 inch display. The device runs on Android 5.1 with OxygenOS. The device has a feature called the ‘shelf’, which is activated when you swipe to the left on the home screen; it opens your preferred contacts and recent apps.
