Xiaomi has unveiled its first VR headset in China. The device features a zipper design that ensures the phone inside the housing does not fall out, and is made out of a combination of EVA and Lycra. Xiaomi says that the materials were chosen to prevent discomfort when using the headset for an extended duration of time.
The VR headset measures 201 x 107 x 91mm and comes in at 208.7g. It can accommodate phones with screen sizes of 4.7 inches to 5.7 inches, and will be available in a variety of colors and customizable designs. There's also a standalone app that lets users view 360-degree content and play VR games designed for the headset.
Xiaomi is currently taking registrations for beta testers, and while there's no information on retail pricing, it is estimated to be under $10.
