    No one knows regardless of position on the waiting list. Could be a week, could be a month, could be a year. My advice to you is if you cannot wait that long you should look at other devices.

    You'll definitely get an invite before August 11, 2016. How early, though, I couldn't say

    IS THIS A SCHEME???
    I just checked my standing on the invite list.
    3,643,178 / 3,987,406
    Thats very sweet of OP I will get my invite before 300,000 folks who are aspiring to own OP2. I feel honored!
    But if my understanding is correct there OP will sell ~3M phones in couple of says if they send out invites to all the folks queued up to get their invites (assuming there will be ~25% or 987K folks changing their mind after receiving an invite)
    Which company would not like that to happen?
    There are folks like me who are flooding (694,391 members with ~ 12 M messages) the forums to increase their chances to get an invite. Posting on their FB inviting their friends to join the OP events. Does OP really think that customers like me will wait that long? Really want to understand what is going in their mind. I understand power of referrals, making wait in anticipation, reduce or eliminate their marketing cost, etc. but isn't this stretching it too far. Does OP think they can sustain it that far? Wont folks get frustrated, loose trust and walk away to different smart phone?

    I like to cut open a small animal and use the entrails to read the future. If you want to know when your invite will arrive I'll need you to ship me a small rodent of your choosing. Though there is a waiting list for my future telling services

    The reservation list is a joke, OnePlus will be lucky if they even get half of the amount of sales the list suggests.

    OK i took a discount factor of 25% even I discount it by 70% as you suggested still OP will sell 1.2 M phones overnight! That by any standard is not a small number for a company as new and as big as OP.

    My guess is 500-600K range (in first 30 to 90 days). That's just me...could be much worse or way better...we'll see.

    500K units sold overnight is still a very big number for them considering that they are targeting only 1 M units to be sold in 2015. (http://www.engadget.com/2014/11/06/oneplus-smartphone-sales/)
    At this point, there is a lot that remains unanswered. I still can not understand their logic of making their wannabe customers wait for such a long time!

    They are holding it back in order to keep hype going. It might work or it might backfire badly.
