The OnePlus 2 just sold out in 64 seconds

OnePlus smartphones are notoriously hard to get, and the same seems to be true even in its home country.

While the world suffers through a notorious invite-only purchase system, OnePlus just sells it handsets straight out in China.

However, the fledgling smartphone maker is already out of stock of the new OnePlus 2 handset.

The company began selling the device in China today, but sold out within just 64 seconds.

According to the OnePlus Weibo page (via GForGames), it managed to ship 30,000 units during the on-sale period.

OnePlus says that since the production capacity is still in its scaling period, stock is limited.

The company confirmed that its next round of sales in its home nation would kick off at 10:00 local time on August 11.

That’s the same date the company is due to kick off sales globally, although you’ll need an invite to make a purchase.

Unfortunately, they might be in short supply. At the time of writing, over 1.7 million people have signed up to the invite waiting list.

Earlier this year, OnePlus claimed it would have 30 to 50 times the amount of OnePlus 2 stock it had with the launch of the OnePlus One.

However, we still don’t have any concrete figures regarding exact stock levels, so we’re not sure whether the company will be able to meet the 1.7 million wannabe-buyers straight off the bat.
