The Smartphone manufacturers and some Social Media like Facebook are now having their own tests in VR arena, with their own unique contributions, including a special guy named HoloLens by Microsoft. Anyway, the Chinese Smartphone giant Huawei also now getting started into VR world, by announcing their own 360° VR headset in its Home Country China, just after releasing their latest flagship device Huawei P9. The Huawei VR is specialized to some devices, as Samsung does in Gear VR.
First of all, the compatible devices for Huawei VR is limited to the last three flagships Mate 8, P9 and P9 Plus. As these devices are sporting only 1080p displays, they are really not completely moulded up to star with the VR environments. Lacking of 2K/4K displays will make some disappointments among the users. The Virtual life within Huawei VR will not be superior as in Gear VR. The VR headset is made in some fine looking plastic and nice design.
The Huawei VR needs your own pairs of Headphone to hear the voice within videos. It supports 360-degree view using Gyroscope, and sporting the internal pairs of adjustable lenses, which is suitable for seeing the people who are having myopia of down to -7.00. The controllers for the Huawei VR is located on right side of the Headset including Touch panel, back button and a volume rocker. It has 20ms latency and a 95-degree field of view, and a blue light filter to protect our eyes (thanking OEMs to taking care of consumers’ health).
Huawei offers 4,000 movies, 40 free games, 350 panoramic images and 150 panoramic tours along with the VR headset. All the features and sales for the device is currently limited to the Chinese market and Global consumers have to wait more for getting a VR from Chinese manufacturer. Pricing and availability of the Huawei VR headset is still unknown.
