Well, well, well. Here's something that we don't get to see everyday. While OnePlus has been known to be launching the OnePlus 2 for quite a while, the company has officially announced a launch date for the event. The OnePlus 2 will be coming to us in exactly one month, or July 27th to be more precise. What's more interesting is how the manufacturer will be launching its coveted smartphone flagship this year. The OnePlus One was a success by several means and looks like OnePlus really doesn't want to leave any holes barred when it comes to the device's successor this year.

OnePlus To Launch Flagship Smartphone On July 27th Through VR Event

So, if you're a OnePlus fan, and have managed to score an invite for the company's launch of the OnePlus 2, you're in for an interesting bit of news today. The company has announced that the OnePlus 2 will be coming on this July 27th. And if you're wondering where the company will be hosting the device's launch, the answer is: nowhere. The OnePlus 2's launch event will be a complete VR event that will allow users to interact with the freshly launched device in new ways.

In fact, the company seems to be eager to further strengthen its core fan base which was developed with the OnePlus One. Users who have submitted photographs and videos of their experience with the original OnePlus will be a part of the launch as well. This will be coupled with an upgraded Google cardboard, designed by OnePlus itself, that will help the users who will be 'attending' this event. The company hasn't provided any details on where to get these, but it promises to update soon, right here.

So far, the OnePlus 2 is expected to come with Qualcomm's throttling plagued Snapdragon 810. With the OnePlus 2's launch the company will become another manufacturer to give Qualcomm's silicon a try; hopefully it manages to fare better, as a badly performing device might end up harming OnePlus more than it has others. The device is also expected to come with a Type-C USB port, another first of its kind. Stay tuned, we'll keep updated. And let us know what you think in the comments section below.
