Initially, a Chinese startup aims to sell it through a well-known online inviting system. According to this, one needs to sign up and wait to receive their invite from the company. The method of selling One Plus X is similar to its original One Plus Smartphone and to One Plus 2 that were launched few months back.
One Plus says that the frustrating method of selling isn’t about generating hype, but it’s for managing inventory to ensure that it doesn’t manufacture more than it can actually sell. No matter whatever the reason is, the result is to pay great attention to every move that One Plus’ makes in the following months to get your One Plus X.
Confused? Don’t worry. Here are the workarounds that will help you in buying One Plus X without any invite.
