Commenting on the upcoming OnePlus 3 and the VR launch, Carl Pei, CEO, OnePlus wrote on the OnePlus forum, he said,"We’re extremely excited about the OnePlus 3, but it’s important to remember that without you, we wouldn’t have made it this far. Actually, that’s why we decided to do VR launches in the first place. Instead of speaking to a few members of the press, to be able to bring all of you together at the same time, and the same place. This is just as much your launch as it is ours. We can’t wait to see what’s next, so let’s find out – together,"
