OnePlus has announced that it's upcoming smartphone, the OnePlus 3, will be available for everyone to purchase without the need of an invitation.

"We're releasing the OnePlus 3 invite-free, right from launch day. In addition, invites are gone forever from future OnePlus product launches," the company announced on its official forums page.

"The invite system has a special place in our history. When we first started out, our team was incredibly small. We had no idea what the demand of the OnePlus One would look like."

The company said that it opted for an invite-only system for selling the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 to lower the risk of selling out immediately. 

The system allowed them to replenish their inventory, so that all customers will be able to get their desired handset.

OnePlus stated that removing the invite-only system is a huge step for the company and that they now feel confident that they will be able to sell the OnePlus 3 without it.

The OnePlus 3 will be officially launched on June 14 in virtual reality. Design & Trend reported last month that users who watch the unveiling in VR will be transported to a space station called The Loop.

In preparation for the unveiling and launch, the company also handed out 30,000 of its own Loop VR headsets for free.

The company's latest flagship smartphone will also be available to buy in virtual reality. 

OnePlus said that its latest handset will exclusively be available to purchase in The Loop during the first two hours of its launch.

Once the first two hours are up, everyone will be able to order the OnePlus 3 from at 3:00 PM ET.

Based on previously leaked information, the OnePlus 3 will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB of external storage, according to GSM Arena.
