The OnePlus One is so popular that you have to be invited to purchase it

The immensely popular One flagship from OnePlus has generated quite a lot of hype not just before but after its release. Thanks to is robust specs sheet at a very competitive off-contract price the smartphone has become quite the hit. It’s become so popular, in fact, that the company has had a hard time fulfilling orders. Until now. OnePlus has just announced a new competition that’ll give away 10,000 purchase invites to potential OnePlus One buyers.

The OnePlus One might not have the best smartphone name you’ve ever seen, but just about everything else about it is tremendously appealing — especially if you’re a hardcore Android fan. The handset runs a heavily customized version of Android known as CyanogenMod, and it’s just begging to be hacked to your heart’s content. It also features a sleek design, surprisingly solid specs and an off-contract price that starts at just $299. The problem, of course, is that it’s incredibly difficult to purchase a OnePlus One because the phone is in such high demand. Now, however, OnePlus is giving Android fans 10,000 more chances to buy a One. “Bummed that summer is almost over? Reminiscing about all the good times in the past three months? We have just the thing to cheer you up: The Summer Shots Contest!” OnePlus wrote in a post on its forum. “We are inviting all OnePlus fans to share a photo from their summer holidays for a chance to win 1 of 10,000 invites. No, that’s not a typo – 10,000 invites. Excited now? But there’s more; 100 lucky fans will also receive a vintage Never Settle t-shirt in addition to an invite. So if you haven’t already, go out and snap a photo!”
