Today - a special event of Xiaomi and Oculus has announced the joint launch of the Oculuc Go VR headset in the China. The announcement took place during the course  Facebook F8 Developer Conference by Mark Zuckerberg himself and now the well-known VR headset will be available in the Chinese market exclusively by Xiaomi,starting in the summer. The futuristic device already supports over 1000 VR applications, is made of special material to "breathe" the skin, comes with a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution screen, anti-vertigo lenses to keep the user from stunning, and will be available in two versions 32GB (at 199 $) and 64GB at $ 249.






Oculus, the VR unit of Facebook, announced international availability of its Oculus Go headset, with its hardware manufacture partner Xiaomi set to release its own MiVR Standalone with Oculus in China soon.


Xiang Wang, Xiaomi SVP, said the moves mean that VR is “more accessible than it’s ever been”.



Oculus Go is now available in 23 countries and is a standalone headset at an “attractive price point” — $199 with 32GB of storage, or $249 for the 64GB model. The first standalone device from the company, operating without the need for a smartphone or PC, it includes a 538-pixel-per-inch 2560×1440 pixel screen, with built-in spatial audio and integrated microphone. Oculus Go supports three degrees of freedom, that is, it only tracks head turns left-right, up-down and right-to-left tilt. Unlike the more expensive VR helmets that track 6 degrees of freedom, the device provides a lesser "immersion" in virtual reality.



The VR company announced its partnership with Xiaomi at CES 2018 in January, at which point MiVR was also announced “exclusively for the Chinese market”. The devices share the same core hardware features and design, and both support the Oculus Mobile SDK, with Xiaomi working with developers to localise content for MiVR in China. Oculus Go/MiVR are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 Mobile VR Platform.
