Christmas is coming: OnePlus 2 is invite-free forever, OnePlus X will be just this weekend

Good news, OnePlus lovers. The OnePlus 2 will be available for everyone without an invitation starting tomorrow, Dec 5th.  That’s great news for the patient users who have wanted to get their grips on the smartphone that OnePlus launched this summer and that was his new “flagship killer”.

The step comes at the right time: Christmas time provides a nice excuse to get a new smartphone, and the OnePlus 2 has received great reviews (4.5/5 stars at TechRadar, 86/100 at Engadget, 8.5/10 at The Verge).

You’ve got to remember that this has no NFC of MicroSD slot (the 64GB model is therefore specially recommended) but the screen, the fingerprint scanner, the processor and a nice camera -not top-notch, though- make this model really attractive.

It’s a pity that we’ll have to wait for a invite-free forever OnePlus X, but if you’re interested this model (with an even better price/features ratio, I only miss the fingerprint scanner), this weekend you’ll be able to get it without an invite too.
