Nearly 3 million consumers ask for OnePlus 2 invites At the end of July, Chinese startup OEM OnePlus announced their next flagship device, the OnePlus 2.
With high-end specs and a low price, the device immediately gained the attention of the tech world and it appears there is certainly some interest in the smartphone.

The company revealed yesterday that 2 million people had signed up for the company's invitation reservation list, and as of writing that number has just about hit 3 million.

If you buy a OnePlus 2 you will get a 5.5-inch 1080p display powered by a custom Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor and 3 or 4GB or RAM depending on the model you choose. The selfie cam clocks in at 5MP while the standard camera is 13MP with OIS and two-tone flash. The phone is also the first device to launch with the USB-C connector, will include a fingerprint scanner and runs on Android 5.1 with the OxygenOS user interface overlay on top.

Most importantly, OnePlus has managed to keep their margins razor thin and keep the price low, as well, with the 16GB storage/3GB RAM model selling for just $329 and the 64GB/4GB RAM model selling for just $389.

The phone is available on August 11th.
