With the tech industry events being taken online, travel restrictions still in place, and shops just starting to reopen, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) is becoming the preferred choices to showcase products.
A year ago, OnePlus collaborated with Blippar, a London-based technology company specialising in augmented reality, for the OnePlus Nord launch. It’s worth mentioning, OnePlus was the first smartphone company to do so.
Well, OnePlus’s AR connection didn’t end there! Last month, OnePlus came up with a unique way for people to check out the physical features of the latest Nord CE 5G from the comfort of their homes. To be specific, the company launched an impressive AR experience that allows users to see the device up close through their smartphones.

Again, the company’s AR technology does not stop there! With the launch of Nord 2 around the corner, OnePlus has created interactive games leveraging AR technology: the Fast and Smooth Challenge.
