Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus announced on Thursday, Nov.19, that the invites to purchase its latest phone, the OnePlus X, are now live and ready for claiming for people who made reservations in the United States and Canada.

The Shenzhen-based phone company said that it will use the invite system for the first month of OnePlus X's release in order to match the demand for the new smartphone with supply.

After the first month, OnePlus said the mobile device will be made available to customers on a wider scale without the need for invite reservations.

Those who were able to secure an invite through the company's official website can now purchase the OnePlus X starting at $249 for every handset.

Other Ways To Get a OnePlus X Invite

Aside from the getting an invite through OnePlus' online site, the phone maker also launched a contest aimed at giving away 1,000 invites and even a OnePlus X handset to prospective buyers.

Participants are asked to download the new photography app called Reflexion and use it to create a photo that features a theme of changing seasons. Entries should then be posted on Instagram tagging OnePlus (@oneplustech) with the hashtag #reflexionapp.

Winners of the contest will be selected on Friday, Nov. 20, and will be announced within the next two days.

Individuals who have already bought a OnePlus X unit are also given invitations, which they can then hand out to others interested in the new phone.

OnePlus reward invites to active members of its official forums as well as those who attend the company's shows that are held in different sites from time-to-time.
