The Sequel to One of 2014's Best Smartphones to Be Unveiled

The OnePlus One is one the best contract-free Android smartphones that you can buy for $250. It's also one that not many people have heard of. Next month, OnePlus will officially announce its successor, the OnePlus 2 — in a very futuristic way. Big product announcements are typically live streamed, but OnePlus isn't going for typical. According to a forum post, on July 27 at 7 p.m., it will unveil the OnePlus 2 completely in virtual reality. Mashable confirms that the launch will be live streamed in VR. The VR experience will also be available as a download for viewing again afterward.
