With the full unveiling of the OnePlus 2 coming next week, OnePlus have decided to share some numbers as to how well this small company managed to do in the first year of selling their hard-to-get OnePlus One.
In April 2014 OnePlus opened up their janky invite system so users could purchase the kick-ass and insanely affordable debut handset, the OnePlus One. That was well over a year ago now, and OnePlus has revealed that by April 2015, the company had sold 1.5 million units in 35 countries.
Sure, it’s not quite as high as what Samsung and Apple are selling in the same period, but for a small company with their debut handset which was only sold through a series of invitations and requests, they’ve done quite well for themselves.
On this success, OnePlus are planning to open up shop in both Europe and North America likely to help with the demand for the OnePlus 2 which is set to be revealed next week on July 27. The invite system will still exist for this handset, but we’ve been told it won’t be in place for long, and will be managed much better.
We’ll see, shall we?
