Lenovo introduced the world’s first standalone Daydream VR headset at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in January. It brought to life the idea of a VR headset that doesn’t require a smartphone or any cables to function. While it has its own internal specifications, it’s based on Google’s Daydream platform. If you were interested in picking one up back then, then time to open your wallets because Lenovo is now taking pre-orders for the Mirage Solo.
The Lenovo Mirage Solo has a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which can be expanded up to 256GB through a microSD card. There’s also a 4,000mAh battery.
The VR experience is powered by a 5.5 inch 2560 x 1440 LCD display with a 75Hz refresh rate. With all of its internals, the headset has a weight of 1.42lbs so it’s not overly heavy. With the headset on, users will be able to move around the room freely with a 100 degree field of view.
B&H Photo has now listed the Mirage Solo headset as available for pre-order. It costs $399.99 and will be shipped on May 11th. That’s the first Friday after Google’s I/O 2018 conference and it’s likely that we’ll get to hear about the Mirage Solo during those days.
Lenovo also launched its VR180 Camera at CES 2018. The camera enables users to shoot immersive 3D video and photos. The VR180 is also up for pre-order at B&H Photo for $299.99 and begin shipping on May 11th as well.
