Lenovo Mirage Solo Daydream Headset Now Available For Pre-order at $400

Latest news

    Lenovo’s Mirage Solo, a standalone VR headset in the Daydream app ecosystem, has had an official release date and price for some time now: May 5th and $400. Pre-orders are now live for both the VR headset and Lenovo’s VR180 camera.

    You can pre-order Lenovo Mirage Solo on Amazon for $400 with a release date of May 6th.

    There’s also a bundle featuring the Mirage Solo headset and Mirage Solo VR180 camera for $700, although the bundle doesn’t provide any discount off the combined prices; the camera costs $300 on its own.

    The Mirage Solo is a standalone VR headset, meaning it has everything on board for VR, and doesn’t rely on a docked smartphone or host PC. Based on Google’s Daydream Android VR ecosystem, the headset’s biggest claim to fame is its 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF) tracking, which allows for room-scale positional tracking.

    Much like Vive Focus, which was previously intended as a Daydream headset before HTC decided to use Viveport Mobile and release it first in China, tracking is done through the headset’s front-facing cameras, requiring no external sensors for room-scale experiences.

    We went hands-on with Lenovo Mirage Solo back at CES 2018 in January, and while the system clearly has strong fundamentals, the price point puts it in a weird segment that may ward off many. The hands-on article offers a comprehensive look at the headset, so it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re still on the fence.
