Oculus Announces Partnership With Xiaomi And Qualcomm For Oculus Go

When Oculus announces its standalone Go virtual reality headset in October previous year, the company didn't reveal much regarding the hardware that it has implemented into the device.

Consumers can expect to see the new Oculus Go on shelves later this year although we don't know how long it take the company to release the headset in Malaysia. This is a key distinction, considering that Facebook's core service is blocked in China because of censorship issues.

Qualcomm held its pre-CES 2018 press conference today and as part of the event brought virtual reality (VR) company Oculus on stage for a very special announcement. The Oculus Go is a low-priced, standalone version that has a subset of the capability of the PC-connected Oculus Rift VR headset, and it represents Facebook's effort to reach a broader audience for VR technology. A Facebook spokesperson declined to elaborate when asked for more details.

Facebook said that Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi will make the hardware for the upcoming Oculus Go virtual-reality headset.

Xiaomi is launching Oculus Go globally with Facebook/Oculus, and Xiaomi is designing a headset that is specifically tailored for the Chinese market. It also supports the Oculus Mobile SDK and existing Oculus developers should be able to port content over to the Mi headset relatively seamlessly. It's meant to be an in-between device for people who want something more intense than a headset where you clip in a phone, but don't want to pay for one that requires an expensive PC and cables.
