Anyone can preorder the OnePlus One starting October

Users who been praying every night to get an invite to buy the OnePlus One will soon have an equal chance to pre-order this great and cheap handset.

OnePlus will launch a new pre­order system in October, which will allow anyone to virtually line up and purchase the smartphone but for a limited time purchasing window.

Prospective OnePlus One buyer first in line will get the handset as long as it's in stock, otherwise users will be able to place pre-orders. OnePlus isn't putting any limits on the number of orders it will take, however, the company also noted users will receive a longer shipping estimation date if it gets a lot of pre-order requests.

"No matter what, we'll always tell you our best approximation for when it will ship before you submit the payment authorization," OnePlus wrote in a blog post detailing it would not charge users until the device ships.

Never settle

The OnePlus One is one of the best smartphones for an unbelievably low price at $299, 229 (about AU$320). However, getting an invite to actually buy the handset has been a huge hurdle and headache for interested buyers.

With this new ordering window open to anyone, many more people will be able to get their hands on this 5.5-inch handset. On top of a full HD display, the OnePlus One features a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU.

The handset is more than on par with flagship handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 at a fraction of the price. What's more, the handset comes running a variant of pure Android 4.4.2 KitKat called CyanogenMod 11S, which includes a host of additional settings and greater personalization options.
