Recently, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, unveiled the new Oculus Go VR Headset. According to Zuckerberg, this one is the most accessible VR headset ever.

By launching this particular headset, it seems like other popular headsets like Samsung Gear VR and yet-to-be-released Santa Cruz Headset will face a tough competition. Although, Facebook aims to give fans worldwide a reason to cheer with this headset this year itself, the actual shipment of this product will not start before the early months of 2018. 

If you ask us, there are quite a few exciting features in this newly announced Oculus Go VR headset.

Pretty Looks: Starting with the looks, this headset features new and advanced lenses and a pretty decent 2560 x 1440 screen for an ultimate VR experience anywhere and anytime. You will also get a spatial audio feature built inside this wireless and standalone headset.

Lightweight and Comfortable: This headset is believed to be the most lightweight and comfortable headset to be worn for an ultimate VR experience. In fact, many believe it to be the easiest way for the developers to get in touch with VR or virtual reality.

Cross-Compatible: Another remarkable thing worth a mention about this newly announced Oculus Go VR Headset is its cross compatibility that enables it to be compatible with other gear VR gadgets too.

Low-end Mobile Strategy: At the same time, we must mention that this much hyped headset incorporates the useful low-end mobile strategy. The main benefit of this strategy is that it allows the company to take its Samsung partnership for gear VR to the next level.

Fast Switch: When you will receive your ordered Oculus Go VR headset, you will notice a Fast Switch on it that allows you to switch easily between spatial audio and WQHD LCD screen within seconds.

Built-in Computer: Another main highlight of this headset that makes it special is the fact that it comes with an in-built computer, so you actually don’t need it to connect with a smartphone or other device for proper functionality.

Availability: Although, Oculus Go VR Headset has been officially announced, you will still have to wait to get it in your hands. This is because it is believed that shipment of orders will begin only early next year in 2018.

At the same time, we have learnt that developers will be able to get these Oculus Go VR development kits in November 2017 itself.

Price: Coming back to the most important fact to know about these recently announced headsets from the house of Oculus, its price! All you are expected to spend to buy these headsets is  about $199!

Yes, this does sounds quite affordable, when compared to the previously launched Oculus Rift Headset that came with a hefty price tag of $399.

Up next after Oculus Go VR headset, Facebook plans to introduce features like Venues on the upcoming VR devices from Oculus.

So, stay tuned to grab the latest updates from Oculus.
