With OnePlus sold out, where can you get Google Cardboard?

It seemed too good to be true: Google's coveted Cardboard virtual reality headset at just a fraction of the price. Unfortunately, if you didn't jump on OnePlus' deal pretty much instantly you're bang out of luck, with supplies exhausted in short order. If you missed out, but still have a hankering for some VR action, there are still a few places where you can pick a headset up. In fact, if you're good with your hands, you could even make Cardboard yourself.

OnePlus wants to give you Google Cardboard

OnePlus wants to give you Google Cardboard

This week the folks at OnePlus are doing something right. They're putting their name on some Google Cardboard units they've made themselves - using Google's specifications - and they're sending them out to whoever wants one for just the cost of shipping. While the materials might cost a bit less than five bucks (the cost of shipping) altogether, the fully constructed Google Cardboard - and all the work you'd have to do collecting the right pieces and cutting it all out - evens out nicely. UPDATE: Apparently one massive amount of people wanted to get this unit - they're out of stock!

OnePlus confirms fingerprint scanner for the OnePlus 2

There is little doubt that Chinese startup OnePlus really wants to bring on the heat, figuratively and literally. It has already revealed that it will be using the highly contentious Snapdragon 810, v2.1, come what may. Now it is confirming that the OnePlus 2 will also have a fingerprint sensor. Of course, it's not enough for OnePlus to say that. It is also claiming that this particular sensor is a "fingerprint sensor done right", which will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows from fans of Apple's Touch ID tech, so far considered to be the best implementation there is.

OnePlus 2 front and back sides leaked

OnePlus may already be teasing the public with not so subtle clues about its next flagship, which it has practically confirmed to be called the OnePlus 2, but it isn't exactly forthcoming with everything. Which means there's still plenty of room for speculation as well as leaks. These two latest photos, for example, betray, at least supposedly, the overall design of the smartphone, which isn't exactly that markedly different from the current generation. Except perhaps for what is allegedly a fingerprint scanner on the back side.

Aside from just announcing the its July 27 unveiling of the smartphone, it also revealed that it will happen completely in virtual reality.

Let the Type-C race begin: OnePlus 2 to blaze a trail

It almost seemed ironic that Apple, who has been waving around its proprietary Lightning connector for years, would be the first to advocate for the new USB Type-C standard. Then again, maybe because of its similarities with Lightning that Apple was quick to jump on it. Regardless, the tech industry now seems to be following suit, with some smartphone makers rumored to put it on their next flagship. Well, one is a rumor no longer. OnePlus has confirmed that, yes, the OnePlus 2 will use USB Type-C.

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

OnePlus One price change hopefully heralds something new

Last year's flagship killer just got a killer price cut. That is, if you're willing to live with 2013 or 2014 high end specs. OnePlus One, which took the Android market by surprise, has just announced another price change, but this one promised to be for good. Or at least until the next permanent price cut. It is now $50 cheaper than it was yesterday. But if you pay the original $349 price for the 64 GB model, you also get a year's subscription of Dropbox Premium.
