OnePlus threw its hat into the VR ring with the announcement of the Loop VR headset built for the upcoming OnePlus 3 smartphone. The headset will be built in collaboration with AntVR. Not much is known by way of technical specs at the moment. It’s the same story in terms of features, with the tease of a virtual shopping experience the only available information. However, OnePlus has stated that its own VR headset will offer a better experience than the Google Cardboard, which was given away for free with the OnePlus 2 in limited quantities abroad.
This time around, OnePlus is offering the Loop VR in India exclusively through Amazon. In an bid to generate interest for the upcoming Oneplus 3 smartphone, the company is offering the Loop VR to users at an unbelievable Re 1 (well, with shipping charges, it’s likely to be Rs 40, but who’s complaining).
To participate in the sale, users will have to register themselves on the Amazon Loop VR registration page. It will be sold on two days next month – 3 and 7 June. OnePlus will also be holding giveaways for the device on social media channels.
