According to Tom’s Guide, the VR headset is mostly made out of plastic, and works similar to Samsung’s Gear VR, by sliding a smartphone into the seat and use the smartphone’s screen as display.

At the demo, the smartphone used was Android powered Lenovo K900 that has a 5.5 inch 1080p display.  There are three knobs on the headset, 2 on each side that allows user to adjust the lens, and one located on the top that adjust the view into focus.

There is no touch screen on Lenovo VR headset, so users need to use a hand-held controller to navigate and make menus selection.  A representative told Tom’s Guide, that the VR headset might be available by the end of 2015, and will make its debut outside of China.

 

Lenovo VR headset requires a Lenovo smartphone to work, just like Samsung Gear VR, however, comparing the two brands, Lenovo is a less well-known brand in the U.S.  Therefore, an initial global launch in the U.S. is less likely.  Lenovo VR headset’s price, detailed spec and release date has yet to be confirmed.  We will update if any news.  Here are photos from Lenovo Tech World.
