OnPlus finally puts an end to speculations and rumors floating about the launch of OnePlus 2 – a much-awaited successor of OnePlus. The company officially announced that OnePlus 2 launch would take place on July 27 at 7PM PT (10 PM ET). To make the launch more dramatic and adorable, OnePlus has decided to go Virtual Reality way, ditching the traditional style of a product launch in an auditorium, keynote or seated audience. People around the world can join the launch event right from the place they are at on the said date and time, making the OnePlus 2 launch, probably, the biggest in the history of the smartphone.

The company has already spilled few beans on OnePlus 2 specification; the device would be powered with Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 810 chipset and would sport a USB-C port – making it one of the first ever smartphones adopting the more convenient USB standard. At this time, that is all the information available on the public forum and company is trying to keep the things under cover until the launch.

According to CooliCool, OnePlus 2 would sport a 5.5-inch display, similar to what OnePlus One has. But, there are few other sources that claim OnePlus has planned to launch OnePlus 2 with a 6-inch Quad-HD display. We really don’t know what would be the exact size of OnePlus 2, but if we see the a teaser video of Carl Pei, Co-Founder – OnePlus, he demonstrating the Class-C USB in the upcoming OnePlus 2 and charge MacBook Pro, apparently it is a 5.5-inch display device.

The unique plan of OnePlus 2 launch in a Virtual Reality way makes OnePlus team to interact with anyone and everyone.

“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”, OnePlus wrote in a blog post today.

For the virtual reality launch, OnePlus has designed its own custom headsets to provide a seamless and unique experience. The company said though this will burden us with additional cost and makes us lose money, our passion to do something different and ‘Never Settle’ attitude made us adopt this unique launch concept. The company has planned to distribute OnePlus cardboards soon and has asked the fans to keep monitoring for the upcoming update. We shall also keep you posted about the development here.

OnePlus has no plans to ditch the Invite-Only model for OnePlus 2. In an exclusive interview with us, Carl Pei, co-founder – OnePlus, said that for a small startup like OnePlus, keeping sales in control is quite essential and helps maintain quality check and balances. Here is the detailed interview of Carl Pei, addressing few tough questions, including Why OnePlus is not meant for first-time smartphone users, after this break.
