OnePlus Loop VR headset is completely free, here’s how get yours now

by John_A

OnePlus has announced its version of the Samsung Gear VR headset, the Loop VR. The big difference though is that it is giving it away for free and it’ll work with “most 5 to 6-inch handsets”, not just those made by OnePlus.

The company has 30,000 OnePlus Loop VR headsets available to send to customers. All you have to pay for is shipping.

You’ll have to be quick though, now the cat is out of the bag, it won’t be long before every unit is snapped up.

How to order a free OnePlus Loop VR headset

You need to head to the special OnePlus Loop VR page, click add to cart, checkout (after signing in or registering with OnePlus through your email, Facebook or a Google account), and you’ll be presented with the option to fill in your details and pay for shipping.

At the moment, only PayPal is accepted and there seem to be a few tricks you need to try to get the payment to go through correctly.

OnePlus Loop VR ordering issues

For a start, the main Loop VR link will only let you order one in the States. However, we found that if you go to oneplus.net/uk/oneplus-loop-vr instead, it let’s you order in the UK.

In addition, the continue button after choosing payment didn’t seem to do anything for us until we entered our billing address separately – even though it’s the same as our shipping address.

Doing both of those things worked though and we’ve had confirmation our order has been accepted.

OnePlus Loop VR shipping costs

Two shipping options are available. You can pay £2.99 for 3-7 day delivery, or £9.99 for 1-3 day delivery. The Loop VR headsets will start to ship on 6 June.

One of the reasons highlighted by OnePlus for the promotion is that it will not only be hosting the launch of the OnePlus 3 in VR as part of “The Loop” – its VR hub – it will also give you the option to pre-order the new phone from within the virtual world. Indeed, those that do will get first dibs on ordering the handset.

The company had previously given away 30,000 Google Cardboard headsets in the past, but that wasn’t quite as impressive as this massive giveaway.
