The Xiaomi Mi VR is a standalone VR headset manufactured by Xiaomi, one of China’s biggest tech manufacturers. This all-in-one VR headset is available thanks to a collaboration with Oculus, a Facebook brand.
The Mi VR has the same specs as the Oculus Go, but there are differences in available content. Also, from the outside, the only difference comes down to the color of the design and the label.
The VR device is compatible with some Oculus applications, but most of them aren’t available on the Mi VR for localization reasons. The Mi VR features Chinese applications since the company is partner with iQIYI VR (Chinese Netflix) and Youku VR (Chinese YouTube). Furthermore, Oculus devs have a big opportunity to propose their VR games through the Xiaomi headset to the Chinese audience.
This all-in-one 3DoF VR headset is available either with 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory.
