Earlier today, Huawei held the Chinese launch of the Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro in Shanghai. But those were not the only devices launched, as in a move similar to what Xiaomi did during the Mi Note 2 launch, the company announced its own VR glasses called Huawei VR.

The Huawei VR is not entirely new as it surfaced earlier this year at the Huawei P9 launch. It kind of looks like a white Galaxy VR with straps that go over and around the head, touch controls on the side, and a focus ring on the top.

The Huawei VR has a 360° field of view, 2K support, and sound synchronization. The glasses will work with 5.5” devices such as the Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Mate 9 Porsche Design, and Huawei P9 Plus. There is no mention of it working with the 5.2” Huawei P9 but the prototype displayed earlier this year worked with the P9. So you might want to confirm that before buying.

Huawei says they already have close to 5000+ free movies, hundreds of panoramic videos and a number of games that you can watch and play on the Huawei VR. The Huawei VR is priced at ¥599 ($88) and should be available for purchase anytime soon.
