OnePlus 2 can be purchased on GearBest without an invite IBTimes UK

GearBest is offering the OnePlus 2 smartphone without an invite on a nearly $50 (£33) discount. The China-based phonemaker scrapped its purchasing system sometime back, where in buyers had to wait for an invite to buy the device.

Previously, GearBest had listed the OnePlus 2 for $464.69, but has slashed its price to $416. However, those who wish to order the handset from GearBest should know that smartphone is the global unlocked variant, and its connectivity performance would vary depending on wireless network providers.

The device is available to buy in the US, EU and Hong Kong.
