Xiaomi debuts Mi VR Play entry-level virtual reality headset

A Chinese device manufacturer Xiaomi announced its first entry-level VR headset dubbed Mi VR Play. The headset is made up of Lycra Fabric and furnished with a lightweight two-way zip design that does the job of ensuring control over the smartphone kept inside.

The first VR headset from Xiaomi flaunts an ability to hold smartphones within the range of 4.7-inch to 5.7-inch screen sizes. It comes along with anti-reflective optical-grade aspheric lens to deal with maximum clarity.

“Mi VR Play has significantly improved upon the design typically used in similar VR products — it is wrapped in lightweight, durable Lycra for long-lasting comfort. In the future, Mi VR Play will also be available in a selection of bold prints and colours for even more stylish options,” describes Xiaomi.

“The unique two-way zipper helps to ensure compatibility, providing a secure grip on a wide range of 4.7- to 5.7-inch smartphones. At the same time, the dual openings on the front allow for slight positioning adjustments and ventilation,” it goes on further.

As the headset also features anti-slip strips in order to keep your smartphone safe and aligned with the lenses, there’s literally no need to put efforts after figuring out for the best possible view while using these Xiaomi VR headsets.

The headset is best compatible with Mi VR Play app that offers a broad range of video resources and contents, right from latest movies and videos. Xiaomi has partnered with brands such as Youku, iQiyi, VR hotcasts to offer best possible experience to its customers. The company also said that it’s positive about driving more content to its VR platform.

Digging deeper into the design aspect, Mi VR Play has dual front openings, ensuring position adjustments and ventilation in addition to two-way zipper locks to keep the device secure. It also has a textured metal button on top that establishes direct contact with the phone.

At this moment, Mi VR Play is under public testing in China, costing RMB 1 ($0.15).
