OnePlus fans living in China are lucky; unlike the rest of the world, they got the opportunity to buy the new OnePlus 2 without an invite this week, and boy, did they take advantage of that.

In just 64 seconds, the initial batch of 30,000 OnePlus 2 handsets were sold out.

Samsung has announced it will “adjust” its pricing for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in an effort to boost sales after confirming another disappointing quarter.

The South Korean company’s new profit fell 8 percent to 5.75 trillion won ($4.93 billion) year-on-year during Q2 2015, while sales fell 7 percent to 48.5 trillion won ($41.7 billion).

During its quarterly earnings call this week, Google confirmed that it has seen a “decline in Nexus” sales in recent months. The fall is being attributed by some to the Nexus 6, which couples a super-sized display with a high price tag.

The curved glass display on the Galaxy S6 edge may be considered somewhat gimmicky, but that hasn’t stopped it from being incredibly popular.

According to one report out of Samsung’s native South Korea, the S6 edge has sold just as many units as the regular Galaxy S6 since the devices made their debut on April 10.

Samsung’s smartphone sales may have dipped in recent months, but its new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are already off to an excellent start. Since their unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month, more than 20 million handsets have been pre-ordered.
