July 27 OnePlus 2 Launch in VR & Free Cardboard
OnePlus keeps releasing detailS about their OnePlus 2 launch — but this time it is not one about the phone itself but rather its unveiling event. OnePlus claims that all product launches tend to be the same, so they are tying a new way of announcing their phone by “inviting us to their world”. Just what does this mean?
Their Virtual Reality launch will let viewers stand right with their team and fans as they unveil the flagship. You’ll be able to look around and feel part of the event in a new, unexplored way. This is a very interesting and innovative idea that can easily benefit these kind of events, so we are eager to see just where OnePlus will take the experience. The streaming is scheduled to begin on July 27, 7:00pm PT — write the date down on your cardboard!
If you don’t have a VR headset, that’s fine — OnePlus wants to help users out by making the experience straightforward, simple, and cheap. The company designed their own custom headset (based on Cardboard 2.0), which is mainly tailored to the OnePlus One, and is giving it out for $0 plus shipping costs. This headset is touted to be more durable, compact and cleaner than other variations. The company claims that they did not cut any corners on this product, but it is not currently available. You can head to their OnePlus Cardboard website regardless, and signup to be notified as soon as it becomes available.
