OnePlus Cardboard VR headset goes on sale at Rs 99 as OnePlus 2 launch approaches

To gear up for the VR product launch, OnePlus also announced the OnePlus Cardboard. A statement from OnePlus said it is not just a product; it’s an initiative.

Last month, OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 2 would be launched on 27 July via the world’s first VR product launch.

In a post on the OnePlus Forum founder Carl Pei said, “We’re excited for the future. As a tech startup, our goal is to push the envelope, look for new opportunities, and strive to perfect them. Virtual reality holds a monumental amount of potential. With cutting-edge technology, we can explore corners of the world like never before. We already know that VR will change the face of the entertainment industry, but we’re here to try something new.”

To gear up for the VR product launch, OnePlus also announced the OnePlus Cardboard. A statement from OnePlus said, “This is not just a product; it’s an initiative. We aren’t making any money by offering OnePlus Cardboard. In fact, we are losing money with each one. There will come a day in which we will be able to travel the world and immerse ourselves in amazing things without ever leaving the comfort of our homes. OnePlus Cardboard exists to drive this idea forward.”

OnePlus 2 Experience

The statement added, “it’s still about VR for everyone. With the OnePlus Cardboard and any smartphone in tow, one can also explore a variety of applications that unfold all around you. Visit new places, play immersive games, fly through space and much more with the variety of apps available on the Google Store.
