VR device for Xiaomi, Facebook

FACEBOOK and Xiaomi will release a virtual reality headset in the Chinese mainland market even though the US-based social giant’s service is not accessible here.

The VR device, Mi VR standalone, will be the first Facebook device officially sold in the mainland market which has the world’s biggest number of Internet users. The device will feature both Xiaomi and Facebook’s Oculus logos in China. It’s the Chinese version of Facebook’s Oculus Go, which costs US$199 in the US market.

Both sides, which announced the VR device yesterday, declined to reveal more information like revenue sharing or price and timetable of the release domestically.

The standalone headset doesn’t require a personal computer or mobile phone to work with.
