OnePlus is that Chinese company known for developing high-end smartphones at affordable prices. They are also known for their annoying invitations system, but, for the time being, invitations are no longer required to buy their phones. The company is no longer requesting an ivitation for the OnePlus Two “flagship killer” since November last year, while the OnePlus X mid-ranger was made invite-free in late January.
Valentine’s Day is less than a couple of weeks away and while for some this is an occasion to express their feelings, some want to make some money out of it. OnePlus announced today that they are holding a Valentine’s Day promo for their OnePlus X mid-ranger. They revealed via Twitter that with the purchase of a OnePlus X you will get a Rosewood case for free.

In the US, OnePlus X is priced at $249.00 and it’s available in Onyx and Champagne finishings. In Europe, the Onyx and Champagne variants cost €269.00, while the Ceramic model is more expensive at €369.00. You can order from the company’s official web store here.
