The Oculus Go to be known as Mi VR Standalone in China

Tuesday, January 09, 2018

At CES, Xiaomi and Oculus announced a new VR headset known simply as the Mi VR Standalone based on Oculus’s technology. What we are looking is in fact the Oculus Go, but with a new name and added content by Xiaomi.

Both VR headsets are virtually identical, with the only difference being in colour and content based on available information. The headsets are to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 CPU. Oculus also revealed that Xiaomi will be the hardware partner for the global launch of the Oculus Go.

That said, there is no mention of when the Mi VR Standalone will be out nor how much it will cost. Chances are that it will be roughly around the USD 199 (MYR 797.85) price tag like the Oculus Go. The Oculus Go is expected to go on sale early in the year as it was announced about three months ago.
