OnePlus One Available for Pre-Pre-Order


Tired of entering contests or chasing after OnePlus One invite codes? Well, you're in luck. The OnePlus One is available for pre-pre-order. Yep, you read that right. Pre-pre-order. Just like teasers for movie trailers, that's now a thing.

So... what's a pre-pre-order you ask? Well, because OnePlus is anticipating large amounts of pre-orders, they're allowing you to setup your order now and actually pre-order the device on 27 October 2014 at 15:00-16:00 GMT, which translates to 11 AM - 12 noon on the East Coast (that's 8-9 AM for those of you on the West Coast).

All you need to do is setup an OnePlus account, choose items you want (up to two of each), throw in your shipping and billing address, and save your order. All you need to do from here is to come back on the 27th and put in your PayPal information to process your pre-order.

From what I can tell, you can only pre-order the 64GB Sandstone Black model, which retails for $349. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU with 3GB of RAM, powered by a 3100 mAh battery to support its 5.5'' screen and LTE radio.

Of course, if you were lucky enough to get a OnePlus invite code, you can still purchase before pre-orders start, but once they do, you can use your code to "skip the queue". You can also send a tweet which enters you to win a phone - this is available on their pre-order site.

Looking to pre-pre-order your very own OnePlus One? Check out the ordering site, or if you want a bit more information about the phone, try the main site!
