The company wants this smart phone to be as ‘captive’ as its first release, Oneplus One. Together with some amazing hardware, this phone is believed to launch with some really customized firmware.

Sandstone Black was a finish that appeared on both the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2 but a “new design” will be coming for the OnePlus 3 according to co-founder Carl Pei.

OnePlus 3 invite
As we all know that all the smartphones releases by OnePlus have been sold through Invite, however, they also get available without Invite as well. Like OnePlus 2 was available without any Invite after 4 months of its release and OnePlus X was available invite-free after just 2 months. But this invite system has both positive and negative impact on the marketing of this smartphone series.
OnePlus is getting bigger with every release. The reason behind opting this Invite System by the company was because of their limited production but we can also call it as their marketing strategy, as this invite system makes it unique which only a few lucky people can get hold onto. But, as a customer’s point of view, they can also go and look for an alternative as well.
However, there are rumors that it might be possible that OnePlus three will be open for purchase without Invite. But there is no confirmation yet.
