Lenovo and Google introduced the Mirage Solo VR headset back in January at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.
The Mirage Solo is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 VR platform, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 5.5-inch LCD display that offers 1280 x 1440 pixels per eye, and an estimated seven-hour battery life. There’s also a “WorldSense” tracking feature that claims to let users walk around digital spaces, which is new to Daydream VR.
US retailer B&H Photo has just listed the standalone Daydream VR headset, so anyone can pre-order one for $400. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait quite a long time until Lenovo’s Mirage Solo VR headset will hit the shelves.
Amazon, meanwhile, has a page for the Lenovo Mirage Solo, but the headset is listed as ‘Currently Unavailable’. We’ve contacted Lenovo for confirmation on the Mirage Solo’s price and release date and will update this piece once we know more.
Mirage Solo VR sits in its own unique, if awkward category: pricier but more convenient than smartphone-wielding, low-quality headsets and around the same price as more powerful headsets like PlaySation VR and Oculus Rift that require a high-powered computer connection. It’s also double the price of its major portable competitor – Oculus Go – but with more impressive specs.
