Pico Neo is The World’s First AIO VR Headset With SD 820 SoC
Most virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) are powered by either of these two systems: a modern smartphone, or a high-end PC / gaming console. But now, there is a new VR headset in the works that doesn’t run any of these machines if you don’t want it to.
A Chinese hardware supplier has just released the world’s first all-in-one VR HMD, called Pico Neo. The device comes with a company-made gamepad which actually packs everything, including the CPU, RAM, storage, battery etc., that are required to power the entire kit.
Spec-wise, the Pico Neo sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 32GB of space along with support for 128GB microSD card. The HMD features a 90Hz refresh rate, delivering 1080p images across two 3.81-inch AMOLED displays. Further, aspheric lenses offer 102 degree FOV, focus adjustment, support 0-800 degree myopia.
The VR headset also supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, while the entire set is driven using a 5000mAh battery, which can last 3 hours continuous usage, with 8-10 hours of standby time.
What’s more interesting is that you can detach it from that controller and connect it to a high-end PC directly. However, we don’t known at this point whether it could be incorporated into the SteamVR ecosystem.
Pico Neo is set to launch in June with a price tag of US$550 with the controller included; though you can also opt to buy the headset by itself for around Us$300.
