Lenovo Snapdragon 835-powered Mirage Solo Daydream VR headset coming May 11
Lenovo’s Mirage Solo Daydream VR headset will hit the market on May 11. The device has its own processor and display and is very much like a smartphone that you strap to your head. It was first unveiled at CES, but it is only now that Lenovo has specified when it will be available.
The standalone VR headset contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 VR chipset and includes 4GB RAM, 64 GB storage and a 5.5-inch LCD display with a 1280 x 1440 resolution for each eye. Battery life is claimed to be around 7 hours, making it a versatile solution for people wanting a VR experience untethered by wires and without fiddling around with their smartphone and a headset.
The launch date is the day after Google’s annual I/O developer conference ends, suggesting that Google will once again showcase its Daydream VR platform at the event. Lenovo’s solution is one of a number of similar standalone headsets built using Qualcomm’s VR platform that are expected to arrive this year. The Lenovo Mirage Solo will retail for US$399.99.
