At CES 2018 we saw that Lenovo Launches Mirage Solo Standalone Daydream VR Headset and Facebook’s Vice President of VR, Hugo Barra announced that Oculus Go Made By Xiaomi.

The image shows the box for the $200 device with available apps listed including Netflix, Hulu, Ultrawings, Facebook, The New York Times and others.
The Oculus Go standalone virtual reality headset is reaching the first developers, which means plenty of new information is entering the public realm.
The device was announced at the Oculus Connect, back in last October. Equipped with its own processor & display, and is “hands-down the easiest way to get into VR,” according to Oculus. The display is of fast-switch LCD type & boasts a massive 2560 x 1440 resolution. It contains brand new lenses too. The built-in spatial audio makes sure that you don’t need any additional headphones. Cameras have been installed on the front of the headset by using computer vision tech. It’s expected to help with positional tracking. The usage mesh fabric and an elastic strap make the device look quite distinguishable.
The box also notes the device offers 32 GB of storage, increasing the likelihood Oculus is going to release multiple versions of the device with different amounts of storage.
The device is scheduled to go on sale to the public in “early 2018” but Facebook is yet to reveal a release date for the headset, which could be very much in demand.
