Over 1 million requests for OnePlus 2 invitations have been received

After the first 72 hours from the phone's unveiling, OnePlus now has more than 1 million invitation requests. And why not? OnePlus calls its latest phone the 2016 flagship killer, and in case you haven't noticed, it's only 2015. With the 16GB model priced at $329 and the 64GB variant offered at $389, the OnePlus 2 is very competitively priced.
Last year, invitations were nearly impossible to come by when the OnePlus One launched. This year, OnePlus has promised up to 50 times more invitations will be available when the sequel launches on August 11th in the United States, Canada, India, European Union, and China.
The company will open up temporary pop-up stores today in nine locations: New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, New Delhi, Bangalore, and Jakarta. The first fifty people at each location will get a bag o' goodies, and OnePlus will be giving away OnePlus 2 handsets and invitations.
Last year, more than one million OnePlus One units were sold (the company expected to sell no more than 100,000 units). Even if all of those million plus reservations aren't eventually converted to sales, the OnePlus 2 is already well ahead of its predecessor at the same stage in their lives.

I thought they weren't doing this invitation thing again since the 1+1 invitation received so much bad feedback.

they didn't do the invitation thing because people would like it, they did it since it was their best and safest option.

I'm surpassed they didn't just open preorders for it. If you got in line and put your credit card info in, the company can get a good idea of what the demand is and place orders with their parts spoilers accordingly. Although I guess invites are good because you can give them away if you don't want to use it plus it builds hype.

Pre ordering a phone that had tons of hardware issues last year. Not yet released, new company that hasnt had the best track when it comes to support and other issues. But Apple fans are the sheeps. LOL the irony.

I hate apple only because they are arrogant assholes, but i have to agree with you, to wait for a phone that has no service and real support ( 3 months + for replacement) makes a buyer more sheep than an apple fun will ever be.

Calm down people, request is not purchase. I actually have 3 from my 3 different emails before the announcement, right now, am not buying even one. I know some people feels like me. Let's wait for the sales figures

I also requested it, but no way am I purchasing it now that I'm aware of it's lack of NFC, Quick Charge, and lower battery life, and not with something like the Moto X Style readily available on the market...
