The next iteration of OnePlus line of phones, OnePlus 3, will be launched on VR, just like last year's launch of OnePlus 2. The company is also giving out LoopVR to consumers so that they can attend the launch virtually.
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei wrote a blog post announcing that they plan to "up the ante" with this year's launch. Last year, OnePlus distributed cardboard VR headsets for the launch of OnePlus 2, and this year, the company has tied up with AntVr company to distribute LoopVR.
Those interested in getting the VR headset can go to this link and register with Amazon for the giveaway 'sale' that will take place on 3 and 7 June at 12 PM. The headset will be given out free, with users having to pay only the shipping charges. OnePlus is giving out almost 30,000 headsets this year.
According to reports, the OnePlus 3 launch will take place sometime in June. A leak on twitter by Evan Blass suggests that the phone will have a metal body with curved edges and a 3000 mAh capacity battery.

The phone will be loaded with high-end specs such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a 16 MP rear and a 8 MP front camera. Pei recently hinted that OnePlus' famous invite system might be discarded for good. In the past, consumers have reported problems in acquiring the invite to buy the devices and have therefore moved on to the other smartphones.
OnePlus launched OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X with the invite systems in place, but eventually made both the phones available through non-invite channels.
