Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has launched Loop VR, a virtual reality headset that will allow owners to order the upcoming OnePlus 3 smartphone before anyone else.

The company teamed up with AntVR to build 30,000 OnePlus Loop VR headsets, all of which are being given away for free to customers on a first come, first served basis.

Those lucky enough to get their hands on a headset will be able to order the forthcoming OnePlus 3 through the specially built Loop VR platform.

The OnePlus 3 is expected to arrive before July 2016, but is yet to be given an official release date.

Based on the company's stated ambition to launch the 'world's first global shopping experience in VR', it seems the Loop VR platform will be little more than a virtual shopping mall at first.

However, there's every chance the OnePlus 3 will come with built-in VR capabilities, which could be accessible using the new headset.
