Huawei’s much-anticipated take on the VR headset has garnered a lot of excitement in the world of Virtual Reality. They have taken up Google Daydream’s offer, in which they made their specs public for other companies to utilize.
It’s not yet available, but it is on the edge of being released, and initial reports are quite encouraging. It has been confirmed by Google, and several players in the tech industry have gotten their hands on it at events like CES 2017.
Initial impressions seem to be positive. In design, it looks a lot like the Gear VR, although we know that it will function in a way that is much more similar to the Google Daydream. It also includes a hand controller, which is a welcome innovation, as it will likely work in cohesive harmony with the system.
Right now, details are vague, but we expect that the only phone that will immediately be supported is the Mate Pro 9.
At the moment, it seems like this will be equivalent in quality, or at least in the same realm, as the Google Daydream and Samsung Gear VR, which is high praise, and opens the doors for third-party Daydream devices while setting the bar high.
