OnePlus announces OnePlus 2 promo events in major cities, freebies included
After several weeks of leaks, rumors, and teasers, OnePlus announced its "2016 flagship killer" smartphone, namely the OnePlus 2. All in all, it is shaping up as a pretty sweet smartphone and an excellent value-for-money proposition, starting at only $329. But there's a catch. You'll need an invitation before having the opportunity to buy a OnePlus 2 once it goes on sale on August 11. 

Speaking of invitations, OnePlus is inviting you to experience the OnePlus 2 in person at its pop-up events, scheduled for July 31. These will take place in 9 major cities: New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, New Delhi, Bangalore, and Jakarta. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to see the OnePlus 2 in action, demoed by the OnePlus team members. And if this isn't a good enough reason to RSVP for one of the events, OnePlus will be giving away OnePlus 2 invitations and OnePlus 2 smartphones. Plus, the first 50 OnePlus fans at each location will receive an exclusive bag of goodies.

As for the exact locations of OnePlus' pop-up events, here are the addresses you need to note:

  • New York City: Times Square, New York, NY
  • San Francisco: PCH, 135 Mississippi St, San Francisco, CA 94107
  • London: SwiftKey, 91-95 Southwark Bridge Rd, SE1 0AX

Oneplus must be beyond stupid if they're actually planning to do this...Who the hell opens a pop-up store/event with no intention of selling the device? Can you imagine halfway thru the say when they run out of invites to give (which will probably be soon since theu probably only have like a hundred to give away lol)? "Hey, check out this phone, it does this, this and that, and it only cost $400! How do you get it you ask? Well, you're gonna need an invite to buy it, but we ran out like early in the morning, so tell you what, why not you sign up to join our waiting list of 300,000 people to receive and invite, and maybe if you're lucky, you might be able to buy 1 in like, I don't know, 3 months time? Good day!"
