Do you remember when it was Google, not Huawei; that unofficially revealed the next virtual reality headset? If you don’t; no one can accuse you — that was way back in January. We haven’t overheard a peep from either company since then; though some FCC documents found by Ausdroid indicate; that Huawei virtual reality headset is very original.
Based on the documents; Huawei virtual reality headset incorporates a controller; that is aesthetically same to that of Google’s Daydream View headset. If functionality prevails the same, the curved area at the top should be touch-sensitive, with Home, Return, and volume buttons lying below that area.
What Document Reveals About Huawei Virtual Reality Headset
According to the documents, the volume keys, in addition to managing the volume, enable you to answer or reject calls when using the headset. This means that Huawei’s virtual reality headset is not a standalone headset, but one that houses your smartphone and uses its display to show Daydream-compatible content.
We still don’t know what the finalized product will look like, however. The documents only revealed off the controller, not the headset, and though Google explained to us what Huawei virtual reality headset looks like, it could have gone through some design changes.
We also don’t know when Huawei will increase its Daydream-ready lineup. Currently, the company’s Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9 are its only smartphones that support Google’s VR platform, and though the Mate 10 Pro checks off all the appropriate boxes; the phone has yet to be officially certified.
