Breaking News : OnePlus announce Loop VR headset for Re 1 as an Amazon exclusive, to launch on Jun 3
Advertisement
#1
OnePlus founder, Carl Pei took to the OnePlus forums to announce the availability of the OnePlus Loop VR headset and a “VR shopping experience” for the OnePlus 3.

As the first company to hold a product launch in VR—OnePlus was gracious enough to mention that Samsung was only the second company to do so—OnePlus intends to make the OnePlus 3 even more special with a custom-built VR headset. The headset, called the OnePlus Loop VR Headset, will be built in partnership with the folks at AntVR. The best part of this? The first 30,000 units of the Loop VR headset will be made available for free to anyone who cares to ask, shipping included!

On a side note, we tried booking a free headset ourselves, and while we could add it to the cart, we couldn’t ship to any other country other than the U.S., which was a let-down.

However, OnePlus India’s General Manager, Vikas Agarwal sent out a press release stating that Loop VR headsets will be available to fans who register for it on Amazon’s Loop VR page . All registered members will be able to get the headset for Re 1 when it goes on sale on 3 June and 7 June!

OnePlus says that the Loop VR headset will offer a far more robust experience than the Google Cardboard (they had shipped 30,000 units of Google Cardboard for free at the time of the OnePlus 2 launch). They also say, “Doing the world’s first product launch in VR was cool in 2015. In 2016, the OnePlus 3 launch will be the world’s first global shopping experience in VR. Visitors to The Loop will be able to order the OnePlus 3 before anyone else, in VR.”

The “Loop” referred to above isn’t the headset. That’s the name they’re giving their virtual office that’s in “space” and, we suppose, will serve as a virtual shopping mall of sorts.

Carl Pei ends the post with, “This is just as much your launch as it is ours. We can’t wait to see what’s next, so let’s find out – together.”
