If you want a OnePlus X smartphone sans an invite code, it can be yours on December 8 —in just 15 minutes.
OnePlus, the company that brought you the OnePlus Two and the OnePlus One, has tied up with Ola Cabs to provide the service. Log in to the Ola app on December 8 between 10 am and 7 pm and tap on the OnePlus button that shows up. Hit buy to confirm your order and wait for a OnePlus representative to show up with your brand new phone in an Ola cab wherever you are —no having to enter your shipping addresses and making sure you’re around to pick up the package. You can choose to pay cash on delivery or use your card.
Instant gratification? You bet.
A press release sent by the company says that the service will be available in six cities — Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune, Ahmedabad, and the Delhi/NCR region. If you don’t live in any of these, you can just buy a OnePlus X on Amazon.in —although you will need an invitation code to get it.
The OnePlus X is the slicker member of the OnePlus family with a glass front and back separated by the grey metal band. The all-black phone runs Oxygen OS (based on Android 5.1) behind the 5-inch AMOLED screen powered by 3 gigs of RAM and a 2.3 GHz Quad core processor. The only thing you need to be skeptical about is the 2,525 mAh battery that could leave you scouting for a charger before the end of a busy day.
