Lenovo Mirage Solo VR
Starting with the new Mirage Solo VR headset, Lenovo is touting it to be a truly wireless VR headset as it comes with a display and doesn’t require a connection to a smartphone or PC like Oculus Go or Mi VR Standalone. It comes integrated with Google’s World sense technology, which is capable of tracking the headset’s position in 3D space without making use of any external sensors or cameras. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, and Lenovo claims that it can last for up to seven hours on a single charge.
The Mirage Solo comes with a controller similar to the wireless controller present in Google’s Daydream headset. Even the headset has controls like power and volume.

Lenovo and Google also announced the Mirage Camera with Daydream. As mentioned earlier, it allows users to capture VR videos and photos, which can be wirelessly uploaded to Google Photos and YouTube account. It comes with dual 13MP cameras with the fisheye lens which capture images with varying depth of field for the 3D effect and supports YouTube’s VR180 video format.
The Lenovo Mirage Camera is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC and comes with built-in Wi-Fi. It also comes with an integrated X9 LTE cellular modem in the LTE version, which the company says will be available only in selected markets.
