Crazy it may sound, but it is true that OnePlus is giving away 30,000 VR headsets. Last year OnePlus 2 was the first product to launch in virtual reality.
While it did create a lot of hype among the people. OnePlus 2 went on to become a hit but and was lived up to the claim of “Flagship Killer of 2016”.
Although its past news, this year OnePlus is back with surprise and has thought; not to rely on Google cardboard and instead made their own VR headset for the launch for the launch of upcoming OnePlus 3 smartphone.
This year OnePlus has come up with their own well crafted VR headset called as,”Loop VR” developed in cooperation with AntVR. Notably, The VR headset provided by Lenovo with the K4 Note is also made in collaboration with AntVR.
The design makes it look robust and a lot more useful than cardboard used last year. It somewhat resembles the design of Samsung’s Gear VR, although its the thought that counts. OnePlus also implies it has very good optics.
Onesimus’s Co-Founder Carl Pei is calling it the “first global VR shopping experience.” It means the owners of this VR headset may be given first preference to order OnePlus 3 straight away.
Now that’s a slight relief for only some amount of people as there’s a catch to it. There are only 30,000 being produced. All Indian customers wanting to have the upper hand in ordering the Loop VR headset and OnePlus 3, can register and use mobile App to order the VR.
Indian customers can register themselves to buy the Loop VR on Amazon India for sale on 3rd & 7th of June at noon. It’ll cost ₹1 and shipping charges included.
Judging by the sale date of VR headsets, we can estimate that the OnePlus 3 will launch in the middle of June 2016.
OnePlus has been famous for creating a trend. The company which carved the way for other companies to launch great high-end spec phones with a low price tag is a trend ruling a big chunk of the market.
It’s the second time when OnePlus has created ripples in the tech industry. After launching their much-hyped phone of 2015 aka OnePlus 2 in VR.
VR is the next big thing, and even Samsung has also followed the same path and launched their latest flagship S7 along with a physical VR launch at the keynote. Although OnePlus doesn’t have that strength and money to market their phones with big launch events along with VR launch. Hence they are again launching it as an event in Virtual Reality.
And the idea of giving VR headsets for Re 1 is stupendous and will give boatloads of press coverage to OnePlus. We are excited for the 6 GB RAM OnePlus 3 Are You excited too, share in comments below.
