  • Huawei VR officially announced with 360 degree sound

    Huawei VR officially announced with 360 degree sound

    Huawei have officially launched their Huawei VR headset for their Huawei P9, P9 Plus and Mate 8 smartphones. According to Huawei, theirs is the first to offer a 360-degree sound field. Tech specs and features include a touch panel, back button, volume keys, 20ms low latency, 95-degree field of view and adjustable lenses down to a power of -7.00. 

    This means you can't wear them with glasses but the VR will take care of that for you (thankfully, mine is still below -4.00 so I can definitely try this out). The Huawei VR will come out with a good deal of content but only a bit of it will be VR capable. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but we expect it to make its way to Malaysia as a bundle deal with the Huawei P9.
