OnePlus to launch Loop VR headset this summer

New Delhi: Pushing the growing virtual reality (VR) headset market, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus is set to launch its Loop VR headset this summer. Bundled with OnePlus 3 smartphone, Loop VR headsets will be available on the Amazon Loop VR page on June 3 and June 7.  "We will also have some amazing giveaways on our social media channels along with our partners for the Loop VR headset. Make sure you keep an eye out for them and participate," said Vikas Agarwal, general manager-India, OnePlus, in a statement. "With the OnePlus 3, we’re upping the ante. We believe we, and the tech industry as a whole, have only scratched the surface of what can be done in VR, and there’s much more immersive experiences to be had,” added Carl Pei of OnePlus in a blog post. OnePlus made available 30,000 units of its VR headset for free on its website and these were out of stock in a jiffy.  OnePlus has partnered with AntVR to make the Loop VR headsets which is upgraded from last year's cardboard version.  “Loop VR is beautiful, and developed together with our buddies at AntVR who are pros at VR optics. We’re confident that this year’s experience will be vastly improved,” he added.
