The OnePlus One has had the opposite of a smooth launch so far. Between a clunky invite system, an exploding phone and an incredibly sexist contest, consumers waiting to get their hands on the self-proclaimed “flagship killer” have been getting restless. Luckily the folks at OnePlus have heard your cries for help and have announced via a Reddit AMA that they will be launching a more traditional preorder system sometime in October.
They didn’t reveal anything else about how the pre-order system will work but its safe to assume it will be a lot easier than their convoluted invite system. On a less positive note, OnePlus also noted that their Bamboo StyleSwap Cover will be delayed indefinitely after a flaw was found in the cover’s design. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be pre-ordering a OnePlus One now that you don’t have to jump through so many hoops.
