OnePlus has sent invites for the OnePlus 3 launch in India on June 15. The smartphone will be globally announced on June 14 at 10PM IST. Like last year, the company will be holding the launch event in virtual reality via a virtual space station called The Loop .

It remains to be seen whether the OnePlus 3 goes on sale in India on the same day or the company will only showcase the smartphone and announce its India pricing at the event.
