OnePlus to give away 30,000 Loop VR headsets ahead of OnePlus 3 launch
In a recent announcement, Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has revealed that it has efforts underway to introduce limited-edition Loop VR headsets. The announcement implies that OnePlus has some interesting plans up its sleeve ahead of the much-anticipated launch of its next flagship handset, OnePlus 3.
According to the announcement made by OnePlus, it will develop 30,000 limited-edition units of the Loop VR headsets in collaboration with VR experts AntVR.
OnePlus has also disclosed that the 30,000 specially-manufactured units of the Loop VR headsets will be given away to interested consumers on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis.
OnePlus’ recently-announced move to give away the limited-edition Loop VR headsets to OnePlus fans is similar to the company’s give-away of 30,000 units of Google Cardboard-style VR viewers in 2015, ahead of the launch of the OnePlus 2 handset.
The OnePlus Loop VR headsets will enable users to watch the forthcoming unveiling of the OnePlus 3 handset remotely in virtual reality. For the remote viewing of OnePlus 3 launch in VR, consumers who manage to get the Loop VR headsets will have to slide their smartphone inside the headset. The Loop VR headset boasts compatibility with most smartphones with a screen size of between 5 and 6 inches.
