Xiaomi Mi VR Play 2 headset gets new design and $14 price tag
Xiaomi is refreshing its Mi VR Play VR headset, which was released last year with a new compact design, that will make it more comfortable to wear.
Design-wise it has a pill shaped front with rounded edges, instead of the rectangular shape, and has detachable elastic nylon headband. It is made out of plastic and is covered with a strong elastic cotton called “dragon cloth”. The part that sits on your face is lined with a padded porous material for comfort. It also has invisible cooling holes, for keeping the mobile phones cool.
The new Mi VR Play 2 also ditches the zip up compartment for inserting the smartphone, instead you can simply slide the phone inside the flap at the front of the VR headset.
The new VR headset has 93-degree FOV and will support smartphone with display sizes ranging from 4.7-inch to 5.7-inch, having Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) or more. It weighs 183g making it lighter than its predecessor (208g).
The Mi VR Play 2 is priced at CNY 99 ($14 | Rs. 900) and will go on sale starting April 19.
