Just as OnePlus 3 launch date was confirmed as June 14th, there is now more news about the device flooding into the techno-sphere, with industry insider Mocha RQ, stating that the company has been stocking almost 1 million units to prepare for it’s launch. This does make sense since the device is reportedly going to be available without the need for invites.
OnePlus today announced that it will be unveiling the OnePlus 3 on June 14, with the handset going on sale on the very day. For the first couple of hours, the company’s upcoming handset will be available exclusively in the Loop, the VR platform on which the OnePlus 3 will be unveiled. It will be the first time that a company will be using VR to offering a unique shopping experience.
At this point, there is little left to be known about the OnePlus 3. The full specs of the handset has already leaked, and so has its press render revealing its beautiful design. OnePlus has also already announced that it will once again be holding a VR launch event for the OnePlus 3, and going a step further, it will also be selling the phone in VR this time around.
We have already seen the OnePlus 3 leak in some blurry cam photos and in a press render that revealed its gorgeous design. Oddly enough though, aside from rumors, the final specs of the handset have not yet been verified by a trusted source – until today, that is. @evleaks has just posted a screenshot of the OnePlus 3 running a preview build of Android N and confirmed the final specifications of the handset to go with it.
OnePlus Giving Away Loop VR Headset for Free; To Offer ‘World’s First Global Shopping Experience in VR’ with OnePlus 3
Last year, OnePlus became the first company to launch its handset through a VR event. In a bid to promote the event, the company even went ahead and shipped the OnePlus Cardboard viewer to 30,000 of its fans and loyalists for free to enable them to view the launch event in VR. This year, for the launch of OnePlus 3, the company is taking things to the next level with its Loop VR headset.
The OnePlus 3 has leaked plenty of times over the last couple of weeks, and today, once again we get to have a look at the handset in some leaked pictures. The leaked photos show the handset as having the same design as in previously leaked photos, which corroborates that all the leaks surrounding the handset have been spot on until now.
