Although OnePlus is continuing to unveil its next major flagship in slow motion, we now have a definitive date as to when we can see the complete device. On Monday, July 27th at 7PM PT, OnePlus will officially unveil the OnePlus 2… in virtual reality. Yes, really. The company will stream the launch event in VR so folks around the world can tune in with their OnePlus-branded Cardboard viewers.
The Cardboard headsets that OnePlus will be giving out should be easier to assemble than Google’s standard Cardboard viewers. This is certainly an interesting way to unveil a product, and we imagine many folks will be on board with the idea. From OnePlus:
A VR launch lets you stand right next to our team and our fans as we unveil our new flagship. You’ll be able to look around as you check out the phone in a new way and maybe even find a few hidden Easter eggs. It’s a new way of thinking about a product launch. We aren’t talking at you; we are talking with you.

We’re not sure how many units the company will be giving out, but we can assume it’s a lot. And be sure to stay tuned with Android Authority for more coverage on the upcoming OnePlus 2!
