The problems OnePlus had through 2014 were well documented, with the Chinese company struggling to roll out its OnePlus One smartphone in significant numbers. The company created an invite based system where it could basically make handsets to order and not carry large amounts of inventory. That helped keep costs down and demand high, and it seems it is paying off as the company said it sold 1 million OnePlus One units through last year.That sales number sat at 500,000 in November and OnePlus said it would double it by the close of 2014, a prediction that came true. As for this year, co-founder Carl Pei has said that the focus on the company is improving organization, so hopefully the One and any new devices in 2015 will be more widely available in the coming months. The OnePlus One has been met with enough goodwill that its wider availability would almost certainly make it a hit handset.
