OnePlus live chat rep reveals that the OnePlus 3 will be unveiled on June 14th
Like last year, when OnePlus sent out 30,000 Google Cardboard VR headsets for the unveiling of the OnePlus 2, the company has already announced that it is returning to the world of VR to unveil the OnePlus 3. Instead of sending out free Cardboard headsets, it is going to ship 30,000 Loop VR headsets. Created by AntVR and OnePlus, the free headsets (those who requested one still had to pay the taxes) are more substantial than Google Cardboard, and work with any phone with a 5-inch to 6-inch screen.
Like last year, OnePlus will unveil its new flagship phone using VR. Unlike last year, those watching the event with the Loop VR headset will be able to purchase the phone in Virtual Reality.
Based on this morning's leak and previous rumors, the OnePlus 3 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood. One version of the phone will come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, while a premium model will feature 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. A 16MP snapper should adorn the back of the phone, which will support NFC. A 3500mAh battery will be powering up the unit.'
If the OnePlus live chat rep is telling the truth, we should know all about the OnePlus 3 three weeks from today when the device is unveiled in VR. And if you can't get the Loop VR headset (it already is sold out), you will still be able to view the event on your phone. OnePlus still needs to make this date official, and release information on how those interested can join the VR feed on that date. Stay tuned!
Thanks for the tip!
