OnePlus 3 Release Date

As we already mentioned in the beginning of the post, OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 will be announced on June 14 worldwide. The company also made another important announcement.

No more invites! Yes, that’s right. The OnePlus 3 will be available for purchase invite free from day 1, which means you no longer have to wait for an invite to purchase the smartphone. The company used the invite technique to build hype for their devices, and although it worked the first time, consumers started to hate the system towards the end.

You can now buy all the OnePlus smartphones invite free, and they are also cheaper than before. All this is being done, once again, to build hype for the OnePlus 3. Never Settle!
