Last month, OnePlus announced that it was ditching its invite system on the 2, its second flagship-class handset. Sadly, its newer - but more affordable - OnePlus X still requires an invite in order to buy it - but there's good news on that front in the EU this week.
Until midnight (CET) on Thursday, you can buy the OnePlus X without an invite and with free standard shipping.
The handset is priced at €269 EUR (£199 GBP in the UK) for the Onyx and Champagne color options; or €369 (£269 in the UK) for the limited-edition Ceramic variant.
The handset's key specs include:
- 5-inch AMOLED with Full HD (1920x1080px) display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- Quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
