Xiaomi teases its own affordable VR headset

There is already a number of the VR headset on the market, from cheap to the better ones. And adding to the sea of VR headsets is the Xiaomi VR Play.


The Xiaomi VR Play sits between the basic VR headsets and the expensive kind. It’s somewhat similar to Google Cardboard, but it’s made out of quality materials and a unique locking mechanism. The headset is built with Spandex and Lycra for sturdier construction and it supports 4.7″ to 5.7″ smartphones using a zipper to lock it in place.



The VR Play will be available in Black and a variety of interesting design. Xiaomi also has its own software for the product which includes a virtual theater for playing movies.

Although, the headset is not generally available for everyone, yet. Xiaomi is running a public test in China where an interested individual just needs to pay CNY 1 or roughly Php7 to pre-order and be chosen as a tester. Final pricing is yet to be determined.
