Are you yearning to have the unlocked version of the OnePlus One smartphone which has just created stir in the social media sites, if your answer is yes then remember the date October 27 since this will be the very day you can pre-order the sleek smartphone.

Thank goodness the handset will be available for those who are fortunate and fast enough to chip in pre-orders for the mobile device on October 27.
The pre-order window will only be available for one hour beginning at 11 a.m. EST so you need be very fast while placing your pre-order. Don’t worry if you can’t keep yourself glued with the time given since you can pre-order the mobile phone in advance.

OnePlus stated in a blog post that through invitations the company will be able to manage the high demand for the handset.
The company stated that, “The first two weeks in October saw a tornado of invites sent out in enormous batches of 20,000 and 30,000,” and added, “This was our way of testing our servers to make sure we are well-prepared for dealing with a large volume of orders.”
The invite system is so far successful but still the company is quite anxious as anything can happen throughout the pre-order hour. The company also informed the potential owners to have patience if in case any technical issues emerge.
One can also tweet a link to the pre-order page to have a chance of winning the 64 GB black OnePlus One.
