A few years ago, no one could imagine that virtual reality would become the main direction for tech companies. Now, almost all bigwigs are working on their own VR headsets. Lenovo is among them, and at today’s conference, it released the Lenovo Legion VR700 all-in-one VR headset.
The Lenovo Legion VR700 adopts a hat-wearing design. It also optimizes the front and rear weights to ensure they won’t fall out when worn for a long time. Moreover, it has a large and soft super-large mask. Thanks to it, watching movies will be much more comfortable. The whole machine weighs about 2.3kg.
Both binocular LCD screens support 3664 x 1920 (4K) resolution. At the same time, the pixel density reaches 773PPI. The screens also support real RGB color and a 72/90Hz two-speed adjustable refresh rate.
Inside, the Lenovo Legion VR700 headset sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 whip, a 64-bit octa-core chip clocked at 2.8GHz. Honesty, CPU and GPU performance is doubled compared to the previous generation. Also, there is 8GB LPDDR4X-2133 memory and 256GB UFS 3.0 flash storage.
The Lenovo VR headset comes with a 6DoF sensor, four cameras, supports RMS millimeter-level precise positioning and tracking, millisecond-level initialization speed, millisecond emergency delay, and a tracking speed of up to 30FPS/500Hz. It can be easily positioned in a large space of 10 × 10 meters.
Online, mobile, and cross-platform connections can be performed through the in-machine system or game platform. Also, it supports wired and wireless streaming and mobile screen projection.
Regarding resources, the Lenovo Legion VR700 headset includes 25 random games, with a total value of about 1,100 yuan ($162).
The Lenovo Legion VR700 is priced at 2,999 yuan ($442) and is now available.
Though this is the company’s first product in this category, we think higher-end models are on the way.
