We’re going to get our first official look at the OnePlus 2 tomorrow, and its Chinese maker is getting everything ready behind the scenes: you can now download the launch event app and sign up for an invitation.
Or at least try to. The OnePlus 2 invite page has now gone live, but when we checked it there was only an option to reserve a spot in the invitation to get an invitation list. Your luck may vary.
"You can get an invite from friends who have purchased a OnePlus 2 already, or by participating in our contests and promotions," says OnePlus. "For notifications about our contests and invites, subscribe to our newsletter, join our community on the forums, or follow us on social media."
VR’s the star
Then there’s the OnePlus 2 launch app for Android, which gives you a VR stream of the media event right on your smartphone. You don’t have to use Google Cardboard to watch it, but it’s going to be more immersive if you do.
We know a few details about the OnePlus 2: it’s going to run a Snapdragon 810 processor, feature the new USB Type-C connector and have a super-fast fingerprint sensor installed too.
Other specs are speculation for now, but over the weekend we saw a couple of leaked videos purporting to show off the new handset in all its glory – they should tide you over until tomorrow’s event.
