ZTE VR announced: Google Daydream supported via Axon 7
VR is going full steam ahead and Google has upped its game with the introduction of Daydream. This will push forth a new generation of VR headsets that will be more suited to compete with the bigger guys, such as the Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and others.
Not only is Google building its own Daydream VR headset, but other companies are free to join the party and manufacture their own. It’s only a matter of time before these VR units hit the market. Huawei has already mentioned its interest in the project, and today we have another Chinese company announcing its very own Daydream-compatible VR headset.
The ZTE VR will work with the brand new ZTE Axon 7 to bring a superior experience to its users. And we meant it when we said Daydream would be far superior to Cardboard; this thing looks to be a very nifty gadget. It has a 9-axis gyroscope, which will measure your movements much more accurately. In addition, latency has been reduced to a mere 18 milliseconds. And the 5-part glass configuration makes the ZTE VR as immersive as headsets get.
- Google Daydream platform is Cardboard’s much more advanced successor
- Does Daydream have what it takes to make VR mainstream?
ZTE claims most VR headsets in the market comes with inferior 4-axis gyroscopes. The company also claims to be generous with its 18 ms delay mentions. It is said they can actually achieve 16.7 millisecond delays.
ZTE did tell us this headset is not based off Google’s Daydream reference design, but they have been working with Google to make it compatible with the new platform.
What do you guys think of the ZTE VR? Will you be signing up for it? Of course, you would also need to have the ZTE Axon 7.
