OnePlus is expected to launch their latest flagship, the OnePlus 3 within the next couple of weeks and the company is once again set to unveil the device via a VR event. Just like the OnePlus 2, the 3 will be launched during a livestreamed virtual reality event, in space.
Well not literally. OnePlus has created a VR space station known as “The Loop” which is a far more complex environment compared to the previous walking tour of the companies headquarters in China. From here we’ll see the launch of the OnePlus 3, but today what really matters is that the company is giving out free VR headsets yet again, and they’re WAY better this time around.
In collaboration with AntVR, OnePlus has developed the Loop VR headset which features a design that looks a bit like Samsung’s Gear VR and features a much more comfortable design compared to any of the Google Cardboard headsets we’ve seen for the past couple of years.
Right now, the Loop VR headset is available completely free. All you need to do is pay for shipping which is about $5 for US customers. Only 30,000 of these will be given away, so go get yours while you still can!! Note: As of 9:32 AM EST the page is reporting a 404 Error, so it may be down due to traffic or just delayed.
Update 10:51AM EST: It appears that OnePlus has sold out on the Loop VR Headset.
