OnePlus will be unveiling its latest flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 3, on June 14th, and unlike with previous devices, the company is making it relatively easy to get your hands on one. OnePlus said earlier this month that it would be eschewing its usual invitation-only purchasing system (otherwise known as the hype bottleneck), and today announced it'll also be launching pop-up stores to let users try and buy the OnePlus 3 on the day of its unveiling.

There'll be seven events around the world on June 15th; in New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Mumbai, New Delhi, and Bangalore. "Everyone is welcome," says OnePlus, and there'll also be "exclusive swag" available for those that show. Exact details of times and locations can be found on OnePlus's website.

The first people who will be able to buy the phone, though, will be VR users. As with the OnePlus 2, the OnePlus 3 will be unveiled first via the company's VR app, with those tuning in getting an exclusive two and a half hour window to buy the device before it's available on the company's website.

Leaks suggest the handset will come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, a USB Type-C port, and a new metallic body. However, you'll have to tune into the VR launch on June 14th or head to one of OnePlus's pop-up stores to find out more.
