All you need to do is download the Android Pay app from Google Play, add your card, and you re free to ditch that banged up wallet or pesky purse for good.There s also one particularly big phone that will be missing Android Pay support due to lack of NFC – the OnePlus 2.On supported devices you can authenticate your purchases with a tap of your digit, while on other phones you ll need to input a pin code.Even though Huawei s own phones always fall down due to overbearing software, the Chinese firm has been excelling in design for a while now.Now, if there s one Nexus 6P design choice that s caused a bit of a stir since the leaked images first hit the interwebs it s the glass covered hump running across the top.Slow focusing, even slower post-production, blurry results and unresponsive apps were all common.
The retail box rumoured to carry the OnePlus 3As the launch for Chinese handset maker OnePlus's upcoming flagship OnePlus 3 nears, loyal fans of the brand can't wait to get hold of the phone which essentially means they will need an invite like all OnePus phones in the past.However, tipsters now indicate that the OnePlus 3 may not follow the invitation system like its predecessors.OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei tweeted a few days ago: "Who's looking forward to invites making a comeback?"While the question asked to eagerly awaiting consumers seems like just another build- up to the launch, tipsters seem to have read too much into it and think the invite system may actually be a no show this time.Unlike the OnePlus One which had almost a month's waiting time to get hold of an invite, the OnePlus 2 and the latest OnePlus X invites were relatively easy to acquire.It will have a 16MP camera on the rear side, an 8MP front shooter, and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Hydrogen OS 2.0 for the Chinese market and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Oxygen OS 3.0 for rest of the regions.
China-based smartphone maker OnePlus has announced some interesting plans ahead of the launch of its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 3.The company has teamed up with VR specialists AntVR to build 30,000 specially-made OnePlus Loop VR headsets, and it s giving away 30,000 of them on a first-come, first-served basis.This echos a move made by the company last year when it gave away 30,000 Google Cardboard-style VR viewers to encourage fans to watch the launch event for the OnePlus 2 in virtual reality.From a cost perspective, the difference between giving away $5 cardboard viewers and a fully-fledged Samsung Gear-style headset is surely substantial.But as OnePlus notes, these will likely become collectors items as they will be in very limited supply.Similar to last year, you ll be able to watch the OnePlus 3 launch event remotely in virtual reality by sliding your smartphone inside the Loop VR headset, and it s compatible with most smartphones between 5 and 6 inches in screensize.Inspired by a certain fan video, we took to our imagination of where OnePlus would be decades from now, having moved our headquarters to space.The imaginary space station is called The Loop, and OnePlus is touting this as the world s first global shopping experience in VR — you will be able to order the new OnePlus 3 through a VR mall before anyone else.OnePlus has gained significant attention for its low-price, high-spec Android phones, with its last flagship — the OnePlus 2 — getting generally positive reviews.It also spun-out a second phone last year, a device that we reckoned wasn t quite up to flagship status, though that was never its intention.We don t have an official launch date yet for the OnePlus 3, but the company could be setting a trend with its virtual reality launch events — back in February, Samsung launched its latest Galaxy flagship through VR at MWC in Barcelona, though the Korean tech titan did so at a physical event.
OnePlus, makers of the cost-conscious line of smartphones by the same name, streamed the launch of its second generation smartphone in virtual reality last year.With the OnePlus 3 unveiling just around the bend, the Chinese-based handset maker is once again turning to virtual reality for the big reveal.These headsets are of much higher quality – similar to Samsung s Gear VR – so they ll likely be much more comfortable and sturdy.I mentioned OnePlus was giving away 30,000 headsets for free on a first come, first serve basis but as of writing, all units have already been spoken for.OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said in a blog post earlier today that VR launches allow them to speak to many fans at once versus just a few members of the press.Rumors suggest the OnePlus 3 will be unveiled sometime next month.

Whether that means the company is going to stop the traditional invite system is not yet clear.OnePlus 3 designThe design on the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 was largely similar, but OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that the OnePlus 3 will sport a new design.We believe this may be the case here as well, especially as the render suggests OnePlus is dropping laser auto-focus and two-tone flash from the rear camera.The lack of logo and less polished appearance suggests this might have been an earlier prototype, but it's broadly similar to the render above.Supposedly the OnePlus 2 uses an improved version yet it doesn't seem immune to heating up.A similarly low priceAny issues with the OnePlus 2 will be largely negated by its astoundingly low price tag.

This week the OnePlus 3 is being teased by the folks at OnePlus, a group that previously gave away thousands of "Cardboard" viewers with Google's spec.They've also gone so far as to show the OnePlus 3 off in the video by sliding it in to the headset.This headset, they suggest, will allow you to "travel to outer space in style."How that's not related to a Samsung Galaxy, we can't be entirely sure.For a distortion-free field of view, lenses can be fine-tuned for a perfect focus."Have a peek at our feature Let's test VR headsets on the CHEAP!
