It is easy to see why some of you guys might have been a bit hesitant to get in line for a OnePlus 2. After all they are still a relatively young company and maybe you’re after something more established from the likes of Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola, and so on. However if you’ve changed your mind, trying to get your hands on the OnePlus 2 now is nearly impossible.
This is due to the super long wait in which many would-be customers have yet to receive their invite to purchase the device. So much so that OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has taken to the forums to issue an apology for the delay. “To our fans, sorry. We were equally excited when we saw your excitement around the OnePlus 2. We know how it feels waiting and waiting for something you really want, while being given ETAs that go unfulfilled.”
Pei notes that this is despite the company’s best intentions to make up for last year’s OnePlus One fiasco in which orders were similarly delayed. However it would seem that the overwhelming demand for the OnePlus 2 has resulted in more or less the same situation. However there is good news.
To make up for the delay, Pei has announced that the company will be opening up orders for the handset where anyone, regardless of whether they have an invite, will be able to purchase the handset for themselves. This window of opportunity will run for about an hour, but the company has yet to determine when this will take place.
According to Pei, “One of the best ideas we have is to open sales up for an hour sometime later this month or early next, to make the entire process a bit more painless for would-be OnePlus 2 users. We will need to look into production and operations to determine when this is most feasible. We’ll keep you posted.”
