Not much is known about the specifications: The device has the mobile VR chips Snapdragon XR 2 installed and should therefore run optionally without a player.

Lenovo VR: So far not crowned with success

A first teaser image only shows a VR headset, VR controllers are not visible. What stands out is the halo headgear

, a hallmark of all previous ones Lenovo VR Devices.

Lenovo had between 1920 and 2019 with different VR glasses on the VR market. First based on Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality platform with the PC VR device Lenovo Explorer, later in Google’s Daydream ecosystem with a self-sufficient VR headset, the Lenovo Mirage Solo (test).

The greatest success was the cooperation with Oculus. Lenovo delivered the ugly but otherwise solid headset design of the Oculus Rift S (2017) , which has become one of the best-selling PC-only VR glasses. Although Meta released the Oculus Rift S in 1920 stopped again, it is still one of the most frequently used PC VR glasses.

With the VR700 Lenovo dares to re-enter the VR market, this time apparently without a partner. It will be interesting to see whether the VR headset will benefit in any way from the other devices in the Legion product range and whether it will offer its own store for self-sufficient apps.
