Xiaomi MI VR Play 2: it’s official and costs just 99 yuan ($14)


Xiaomi’s next VR headset was unveiled today (Xiaomi Mi VR Play 2) and added to the Virtual Reality portfolio of gadgets, such as the first-gen VR glass known as the Xiaomi Mi VR Play and the -obviously- more expensive Xiaomi Mi VR Glass.

Xiaomi Mi VR Play 2

The Xiaomi MI VR Play 2 is the successor of the first VR headset and comes with small but significant improvements compared to the first model. Xiaomi likes to call it a toy, because basically that’s what it is. It’s an affordable way to have fun watching VR applications, 360 degree videos or even play games fully immersed into virtual worlds. The new headset comes with a new, improved material that’s more comfortable when you wear it. It’s also lighter than its predecessor and has certain small holes for better cooling.

Xiaomi MI VR Play 2 will be available for all those of you out there who’d like an affordable VR headset starting April 19 at a price of just 99 yuan ($14), which is a steal basically.

      Don’t think it has any, for that price you certainly have to put your own smartphone in there.
