Xiaomi on Thursday unveiled its much-rumoured VR headset, the Mi VR Headset. For now, no pricing details have been provided, but the company has opened the availability of the VR headset to beta testers, who can acquire it for CNY 1 if they are selected after registration.

The Mi VR Headset features a 'two-way zipper design' that the company claims makes it simple to insert and remove a smartphone into the headset, while also ensuring the phone does not fall out of the headset. The company also says the design helps accommodate various sizes of handsets, and there different form factors.

The Xiaomi Mi VR Play headset will be compatible with smartphones from 4.7-inch to 5.7-inch in size. As an introductory offer, Xiaomi is offering the Mi VR Play headset for a mere RMB 1, which comes to around Rs 11. This is part of a beta program for users in mainland China only. Xiaomi has received around 1 million registrations in around 8 hours after the beta programme was announced on 1 August.

The Mi VR Play looks like a refined version of the ANT VR headset we have seen with the Lenovo Note series phones. The headset looks less sophisticated than the Samsung Galaxy Gear VR or the Oculus Rift.

According to the source which leaked the Mi VR Play information, the pricing is expected to be around $99 which comes to around Rs 6700 approximately. The headset is ‘wrapped in lightweight, durable Lycra for long-lasting comfort’ says the press release. The differentiating aspect of the Xiaomi Mi VR headset is that it comes with a 2-way zipper which helps with a firm grip on the 4.7-inch to 5.7-inch smartphones.
