Lenovo Mirage Solo Standalone VR Headset Reportedly Launching May 11th for $400

Lenovo’s Mirage Solo standalone VR headset, which was announced last year and fully revealed back in January, is reportedly set to launch on May 11th, priced at $400. The standalone headset is set to compete with the likes of the Oculus Go and Pico Neo.

According to a product listing on retailer B&H’s website (spotted by Ubergizmo), the Lenovo Mirage Solo is expected to launch on May 11th, priced at $400. The Mirage Solo is a standalone headset (meaning it has everything on board for VR, and doesn’t rely on a docked smartphone or host PC), and it’s based on Google’s ‘Daydream’ Android VR ecosystem. The headset’s purported launch date is just a few days after Google’s annual I/O developer conference which runs from May 8th to 11th.

From time to time we see retail product listings pop up with launch dates for new products; sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong—we’ve reached out to both Lenovo and Google for comment on the purported launch date of the headset.

Back in January we got a good look at the Mirage Solo at CES 2018. We found the headset to have strong fundamentals, but wondered about the $400 price point, especially for a VR experience that still feels ‘casual’ compared to desktop and console headsets. The Mirage Solo will have to compete with the soon-to-launch Oculus Go standalone headset, which lacks positional head tracking, but is also half the cost of the Solo’s purported $400 price point.
