OnePlus 3 is expected to be unveiled sometime early June, and the company has already starting hyping the device before its launch. We know that the company will continue the tradition of launching its smartphone in VR, as the OP3 will be unveiled in the company’s virtual space station called the Loop. Now, the CEO of OnePlus, Liu Zuohu aka Pete Lau has given us a first picture taken by the OnePlus 3 flagship.
The picture is taken from the front camera of the phone, which should be an 8MP sensor. While we can’t be sure of the lighting conditions when the photo was taken, it looks like the camera has done a decent job of capturing even the dark areas. But we would have liked the image to be clearer.
The company seems to have adopted a new sales strategy this year. For example, the OnePlus 3 launch will include the world’s first VR shopping experience, which allows viewers to purchase the device before anyone else when in virtual reality. So, it looks like OnePlus is finally ditching the invite system for good. The company also gave away 30,000 Loop VR headsets to its fans worldwide yesterday which can be used to watch the event. But the event can be viewed with any standard VR headset.
