    A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst, and it sparks extraordinary results. That was how OnePlus was born and propelled by our community; we have brought across a sea of change in the smartphone world. But one thing always remained with us - our love for the community in whichever part of the world we are set up in.

    India, both as a market and a country have embraced us warmly ever since we setup our organisation in December of 2013. We’ve seen the warmth and hospitality of the fans we meet in whichever part of the country we’ve travelled to. Our nation has shaped our minds, anchored our identities, influenced our beliefs, and made us who we are.... India matters to us all, and we would like to matter to India.

    Over the past year, we’ve been overwhelmed by what the OnePlus community can do. You’ve all heard the story before -- we as a startup had no marketing budget, expected to sell 30K phones to keep the doors open, and with the help of the community we were propelled to unimaginable heights. If the community can do something this amazing, what else is possible? With the impending launch of our next flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 3, we would like to do something worthwhile in giving back to the community and our country as a whole and to do so; we are tying up with Droom, India's first and largest online marketplace to hold a first-of-its-kind smartphone auction.

    Here’s the deal: the first five OnePlus 3 devices sold in India will be auctioned off on the Droom platform with all proceeds going to charity. What’s more, the community will decide which charity the proceeds go to since we firmly believe that transparency empowers people with the information they need to make an informed decision, be accountable and improve people’s lives all at the same time. Furthermore, this initiative will provide a greater demonstration of the social impact donations, resulting in a successful campaign. To facilitate this campaign, your vote on the forums count which will assist us in deciding a charitable organisation for donation (which we’ll let you know shortly).

    The flow of the charity is as follows:

    • Bidders need to head over to the Droom website to participate in the auction
    • Registration is mandatory for eligibility as bidders will need to login to the portal
    • Zero participation fees
    • Bidding will commence from 1 Rupee with no cap on the final amount
    • Every bid increases the price of the OnePlus 3 smartphone by Rupees 5
    • Auction goes live from June 9th, 4 PM to June 12th, 3:59:59 PM
    • A live leaderboard will be provided to showcase the top 10 Bids in real time
    • The Top 5 Bidders at the end will be sent a link to purchase the same
    • The phones will be delivered right after the global launch on June 14th

    Hi @bidisha91,

    I am one of 700 lucky winners of VR Loop. As Launch date is coming closer, I still have no idea / communication from your end about VR Loop dispatch status.

    Can you please help me understand, when will I get my VR Loop? Is it dispatched?

    Please reply back. Thanks.

    But which handset are we bidding for? Since every source is pointing out that OnePlus 3 will launch in multiple configurations like 4GB & 6GB of RAM plus 32GB & 64GB storage. Although I am hoping for a 128GB variant or an SD card.

    You sure no communication was received from Amazon?
    Even I am the winner and Amazon had dispatched the VR Headset the same day i.e 7th June. I have got a message today that it will be delivered today.

    It can't be.
    In my opinion, it would be Rs. 21,998 for 4GB/32GB version. The 3K extra for others.. (Like 4GB/64GB- Rs. 24,998.. 6GB/32GB- Rs. 27,998)
