OnePlus is giving away the Cardboard VR headset ahead of OnePlus 2 announcement

OnePlus is set to announce the OnePlus 2 on July 27 during a virtual reality event. The company has already started giving away some affordable Cardboard VR headsets to let consumers tune in and enjoy the show. That's right, they're giving away Cardboard VR headsets for free.

The OnePlus Cardboard can be ordered for free from the company's online store, but you'll need to cover the costs of shipping - $5 for US, £5 for the UK and €7 in Europe. OnePlus claims the company has implemented numerous improvements to make the Cardboard VR headwear more resilient to wear and tear, and is making a loss on each headset shipped.

Interested in picking one up? Head to the store below. For those of you who reside in India, you'll be able to purchase the OnePlus Cardboard from Amazon for ₹99 ($1.5) starting in the third week of July.
