In 64 seconds 30,000 new OnePlus 2 handsets are sold in China

In 64 seconds 30,000 new OnePlus 2 handsets are sold in China
In China, OnePlus 2 buyers do not need to have an invitation to buy the phone if it is purchased directly from the OnePlus web site. The company kicked off sales of its latest device in the country by ringing up 30,000 units in only 64 seconds. Considering that invitation related sales will start on August 11th, that is when we would imagine Chinese consumers will get another crack at buying the OnePlus 2.

Last year, OnePlus figured it could sell 50,000 to 100,000 units of the OnePlus One at the most. So when it ended up selling more than 1 million phones, you probably envisioned champagne flowing from the water cooler at OnePlus HQ. But as company co-founder Carl Pei told USA Today, OnePlus just broke even last year even with all of those unforeseen sales. Breaking even again this year will be a stretch since the company did add head count to support the three to five million units it thinks it can sell in 2015.

If there was some swagger to Carl Pei during the VR introduction of the OnePlus 2, his confidence level must be rocketing even higher following the initial sale of the OnePlus 2 in China.

That's why global warming is happening. Jokes aside, I won't buy it before actually seeing some review. It's 810 in there after all.

Even if I wanted to get one, I have to go through that lame ass invite system.

Watch MKBHD talk about it, the 810 barely has any issues, it gets only a little warmer than the Galaxy S6

Don't worry. By the time you get to buy one, 1+3 will have been announced. :D

Most of the buyers are the Chinese international resellers. Now they will resell it at the double price to the rest of the world.

No one will buy oneplus two at double cost. This phone sells because of the price. If the price was even 450$ , moto X style would eat it alive.

No not everyone gets a free review unit from the Company.. and OnePlus has really made some hardcore fans, who will pay anything to get the phone as soon as possible.

Moto X Style is nothing compared to Oneplus 2.. Dont go to the 'on paper' specs.. Moto X Style is a fat mobile (11.2 mm in 2015!! Seriously??) with an unimpressive camera without optical image stabilization and small battery..

Haha, third place? That's a big joke. With no fingerprint scanner and no dual sim, Moto X style has no place. It is just a mighty pharblet.

The oneplus and moto excel in different places, where oneplus lacks moto makes up and vice versa, the moto x is nowhere near a bad phone

Oh please be quiet! The S6 alone beats the crap out of those 2 jokes although it's almost 6 months older.

S6 is flagship phone and most of the next years flagships from other manufactures would be able to match it in benchmarks, specs and camera. That's a big win for Samsung. But moto x and one plus two are budget phones. For $400 category they are beasts.

Moto x is a product which has actual support in most of the countries. Motorola has better build quality and software compared to one plus one, there are some things missing in one plus two as sell moto x, both are budget phones. It has curve back so thickness varies. Camera on moto x uses imx230 sensor, read about it. I am not saying any product is inferior to another, I am saying don't go to the 'on paper' specs and delusions you have. Unless you have already tried both cameras and handled the phone for long that you think 11.2 mm is to thick, I have moto g as well 2013 which is thicker actually doesn't feel that bad.
