Huawei will finally be launching its own virtuality reality headset. The device has been dubbed the Huawei VR Glass. This has been a device that was closely watched in China as everyone knew a device was on the horizon.
Huawei has been offering powerful and affordable gadgets in China. This new device the Huawei VR Glass will be priced at 2,999 Yuan. This is around $423 which is in line with some of its competition including Facebook’s Oculus Rift (headset).
However, this new device will be set apart from their competition unlike the Rift and the HTC Vivo Pro. Huawei has reduced the thickness of the glass and the lens barrel is only 26.6 mm thick. This is almost one-third the thickness of an Oculus Quest and HTC Vivo Pro.
Furthermore, the device only weighs 166 grams, and the temple can be folded for easier transport. It also has a distance adaptation of 55mm to 71mm. Huawei claims that the device can be adjusted in the rage of 0-degree to 700-degree myopia.
The screens resolution comes in at 3200 x 1600 pixels with up to 1058 PPI pixel density. The device has a 90-degree field of view and the display has a 70/90 Hz refresh rate. The device also comes with a 3D sound effect to give user san IMAX like experience.
Huawei’s content resources will offer users access to 30,000 hours of VR video. You will also gain access to three major VR live broadcast platform and more than 100 virtual reality games. This is a really strong deal compared to many of the existing competition.
Finally, the Huawei VR Glass comes with dual speakers and the device can be connected with Bluetooth Headphones. Overall it’s an impressive device at a good value the one thing that I really like is the access to various forms of content. Also, Huawei is marketing the device as being used for traditional media content rather than a gamer-focused platform.
Using VR as a way to make movies more immersive is a much better marketing strategy than focusing on video games.
