OnePlus has announced that it will begin selling the OnePlus 2 without an invite at midnight on December 5, just in time for the holidays.

No, this isn’t another limited-time promotion; OnePlus is now scrapping its invite system completely for its latest flagship. The Chinese startup will also offer open sales on the new OnePlus X once a week.

Believe it or not, it’s also pretty affordable.
