OnePlus 3 to launch on June 14, no invites needed to buy it
The OnePlus 3 will officially launch on June 14, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei announced on Wednesday. But that’s not the big news. The bigger news is that the OnePlus 3 will be available for buying invite-free from day one. Yes, the company has finally decided to ditch its often loathsome invite-based sales model for the OnePlus 3. That’s not all. The company will now sell all its products invite-free, Carl added.
“We’re releasing the OnePlus 3 invite-free, right from launch day. In addition, invites are gone forever from future OnePlus product launches,” Carl wrote on the company’s official forum .
OnePlus will launch the OnePlus 3 in VR , just like it did with the OnePlus 2. Only recently it announced the Loop VR Headset, which is a gradual evolution of its Google Cardboard-inspired VR that it brought about last year, setting the stage “for the smartphone launch of the year, the OnePlus 3.” It has partnered with AntVR for the Loop headset. The visor-style Loop VR Headset definitely seems like a visible improvement over last year’s Cardboard and the company is also extending its use beyond just the launch event.
“The OnePlus 3 launch will be the world’s first global shopping experience in VR. Visitors to The Loop will be able to order the OnePlus 3 before anyone else, in VR,” according to OnePlus.
