I woke up to another big email from OnePlus this morning—they’re celebrating their one-year anniversary as a company. There’s a lot of news to parse through, so in lieu of my usual editorializing here’s a full copy/paste:
Today marks our first birthday, and it’s amazing how fast time flies. There are so many things we’d like to share with you, so here’s a particularly long newsletter (but full of wonder and joy!).
For the first part of our grand celebration, the OnePlus One is now available without invites while supplies last. All accessories are 11% off, so now is the perfect time to snatch up that case or pair of earphones you’ve been eyeing. We’re also very excited to unveil our OTG Cable, which will be participating in the sale at 11% off!
As we continue into our second year, we are proud to announce one of our biggest moves yet–our own custom ROM. And, because you’ve been with us since the beginning, we want you to help us give it a name. Send us your ideas for a chance to win a OnePlus One, a trip to Hong Kong to meet us, and one of the very first OnePlus Power Banks.
Packing 10,000 mAh of power, enough to provide three full charges for your OnePlus One, our Power Bank will be available in both Silk White and Sandstone Black. It will be available for only $14.99 early next year, but you could be one of the first to get your hands on our Power Bank by participating in our You Name It contest.
Our birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without yet another awesome contest. You could win a 64 GB OnePlus One in Sandstone Black by sending us a birthday message on Vine, so let the creativity flow! We can’t wait to see your miniature cinematic exploits.
For a stroll down memory lane, read more about our year in review in a blog post from Carl. Included is a retrospective video from ours to yours, and we hope you enjoy learning more about our journey together and what lies ahead.
Finally, we’d like to take this time to say thank you to every single one of you. Thank you for the small things like subscribing to this newsletter, thank you for being part of this incredible experience, and, most of all, thank you for believing in us from the beginning.
