Lenovo has revealed a prototype of its own virtual reality headset at the Consumers Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas, USA. The headset features higher hardware specifications than its competitors.


The Lenovo virtual reality headset seems to feature a similar design to that of Sony's PlayStation VR headset and features two OLED screens with a resolution of 1440 by 1440 pixels.
The headset also features several cameras that can be used by software developers to create mixed-reality applications. The cameras are also used to track the player's position without requiring external tracking sensors.

The final retail version of the virtual reality headset is also said to weigh much less than its competitors at just 350 grams. In comparison, the HTC Vive weighs roughly 555 grams and the Oculus Rift weighs roughly 470 grams.

On the software side Lenovo is reportedly making use of Microsoft's Holographic platform, which is also used in Microsoft's HoloLens.

The headset is expected to go on sale later this year and is expected to carry a $300 USD price tag.
