Nearly 3 million reservations have been registered for the OnePlus 2, which was unveiled to the world on July 27. Since there has been exceptional demand for the smartphone, most invitation holders will have to wait a few weeks or longer to receive their handsets.
Gear Best, however, is selling the handset without invitation along with free shipping service.
The OnePlus 2 is available for purchase for invitation holders now. Since the company is unable to cope with the huge demand, shipments to the U.S and Canada has been delayed until the end of this month or early September, Tech Times reported.

Both the handsets are available only in black color with Gear Best.
The OnePlus 2 is the successor model of the highly popular OnePlus One from 2014. It comes with a huge display screen of 5.5 inches that supports full HD resolution. Under its hood lies the improved Snapdragon 810 v2.1 chipset.
The handset arrives with Android 5.0 Lollipop that is modified with its own Oxygen OS software. It features a rear shooter of 13 MP that is coupled with Optical Image Stabilization and at the front, there is a selfie shooter of 5 MP.
