OnePlus X was officially announced in India back in October last year and customers could only purchase the smartphone, if they managed to get an ‘invite’, like the other OnePlus devices. Hence, like previous OnePlus products, the OnePlus X also goes on ‘invite-free’ starting Midnight, February 5. Now, the Onyx Black, Champagne Gold and limited edition Ceramic can be purchased without an ‘invite’ from Amazon India.

On this announcement, OnePlus India, said:
