Latest flagship killer phone from the Chinese company the OnePlus 2, which is available only via invitation may go for an open sale later this month or early next says Carl Pei (Founder of OnePlus). He yesterday posted a lengthy sorry to the OnePlus fans on the OnePlus forum for the slower invite roll out unlike the company claimed at the launch event. They claimed the OnePlus 2 invites rollout will be be 30-50 x faster.
Here is a part of the apology
Well, we messed up the launch of the OnePlus One as well. Although inventory levels ramped up eventually, months after the announcement, it was still extremely difficult to buy the device. We comforted ourselves to the fact that we were young, and that we’d learn and show the world we could do better next time around.
With the OnePlus 2, we made rosy plans. We were more confident, and prepared a lot more inventory. We told our users it would be 30-50x easier to get invites, and they needn’t worry. Yet, we only began shipping in meaningful quantities this week, nearly a month after our initial targeted shipping date. You can talk all you want, but in the end, flawless execution speaks much louder than unfulfilled promises.
I’d like to apologize on behalf of OnePlus for the delay.
In the post he said
Over the past few days, we’ve been discussing how we can make it up to our fans for the delay. One of the best ideas we have is to open sales up for an hour sometime later this month or early next, to make the entire process a bit more painless for would-be OnePlus 2 users. We will need to look into production and operations to determine when this is most feasible. We’ll keep you posted.
