OnePlus is a company that likes to do things a little differently, this much has been obvious since the Chinese brand first launched, without an announced phone to promote no less. The OnePlus 1 and the CyanogenMod days seem so far away now, but it was just back in 2014 that we all said hello to OnePlus and now the firm is getting ready to launch the new OnePlus 3 in a couple of weeks. Circling back to the idea of doing things differently, OnePlus is going to announce their latest and greatest flagship device in Virtual Reality. Those looking to tune in and see just what OnePlus has been working on can now download the required app from the Play Store.
The Loop app has been added to the Play Store and it appears to be available on the majority of hardware, OnePlus or otherwise, and just like the OnePlus 2 launch app, is a simple affair. Right now, the app just counts down until June 14th, 2016, the official date of the launch, which makes this a download that's more of a preparatory download more than anything. Speaking of June 14th, thats one day before the official launch of the OnePlus 3 in China, with the news announced earlier today. OnePlus detailed the sort of launch that users can expect from the launch, which is going to be a Virtual Reality affair on a sort of space station set up. The idea behind such a launch is that users will be able to immerse themselves in the announcement much better than they'd be able to by watching a simple livestream on their laptop or smartphone.
We've heard a lot about the OnePlus 3 so far, and it appears as though the Chinese firm has discovered a way to cram 6GB of RAM into a smartphone as well as a Snapdragon 820 quad-core CPU. Even so, leaked specs point to a device that still has a 1080p display, something that many will feel as a resolution that smartphones should be leaving in the past by now, especially when they can boast 6GB of RAM as well. Regardless, those looking to tune in to the event will need to download The Loop, linked below, as well as have either their Loop VR headset at the ready come June 14th, or provide their own.
