Today, on its blog post OnePlus has announced that the '2014 flagship killer' smartphone will be available without invites from Monday which applies to India as well. The blog post states, " Farewell to invites".

Last year One Plus One made waves in the Smartphone industry with setting up a trend of "get invite and buy device" concept. The company blown the Smartphone industry by providing hi end device at a speculative price point. At the same time, it was as difficult to get the device, due to, invite only concept.

The company stressed that 'open sales' are being announced to celebrate the year anniversary of the OnePlus One's global launch.

The One Plus One smartphone will be available now exclusively on Amazon India and will require no invites. As before, the 16GB Silk White OnePlus One is priced at Rs. 18,999, while the 64GB Sandstone Black variant is priced at Rs. 21,999.

The company further adds on the deal for interested consumers also announced an add-on offer for India valid till Thursday. In these promotional offers , consumers can get flat 50 percent discount on accessories along with the purchase of the OnePlus One smartphone in the limited period. Also, the three accessories included in the limited period offer include OnePlus JBL E1+ Earphones, OnePlus Flip Cover (White), and OnePlus Premium Matte Screen Protector.

Commenting on the announcement, Carl Pei, Co-Founder and Head of Global, OnePlus, said, "By rigorously testing and improving our logistical structure over the last one year, we are far more confident that our processes have matured enough for us to handle the increased production and after-sales support that comes along with opening up sales. It's what we've been working towards, and now we're ready."

Pei also dropped a hint that the company is gearing up to introduce the successor to the One smartphone, the OnePlus 2. He added, "This current shift from an invite system to a non-invite system is a big step, one from which we will learn a great deal before the OnePlus 2 launch, with invites, in the third quarter of this year."

The company earlier this month had announced that it would not hike the price of One smartphone in India. With this move by OnePlus to get away from an invite system for the One smartphone in India is trying to capture the larger market. The move can also be seen as an attempt to clear out stocks of the OnePlus One smartphone ahead of its successor launch in coming months.
