Including captions with great translation for you all non-Chinese speakers.
This Chinese version does not mention daydream, and instead promotes its own software and interface. We will see how the international version is going to be. This headset is currently under public testing in China.
Some official tweets also came in:
UPDATE: Official announcement can now be found here.
Video went live on YouKu by accident, got quickly unpublished but… we did get a first look at the headset itself since a ton of people reuploaded it immediately:
So it does look like a fancy version of Google Cardboard with zipper and all. Let’s hope it comes cheap and outside of China as well at some point. We are waiting for an official announcement regarding its actual features (controls, pricing, bundles, etc.) in a day or two from now over at mi.com.
Video source (warning: bad, and not original audio):
And they left us confused. Teasing the teaser! YouKu teaser is right here too. So yeah. Apparently Xiaomi is beta-testing their headset with the public and recording people’s reactions to it without showing the headset yet. We will have to probably wait for 3 more days to actually see it.
It is going to be big. Standalone or with phone? We will see!
