Coolpad, the Chinese OEM popularly known in India for their budget and mid-range smartphones has now launched their VR Headset dubbed the Coolpad Cool VR 1X in the country at a price of Rs 999.
Cool VR 1X is just like any other budget VR Headsets available from other OEMs in India; however it clearly has an edge over the others thanks to its stellar pricing. One of its main competitors namely the ANT VR Headset from Lenovo is priced markedly higher at Rs 1,299. The budget Virtual Reality headset from Coolpad comes with customizable lenses that will allow you to optimise the focal length and the object distance. That aside, Coolpad Cool VR 1X comes with support for most phones that sports a display size ranging from 4.7 inch to 5.7 inch and a minimum resolution of 1280x720p. It goes without saying that the supported phones also include the company’s own Coolpad Note 3, Note 3 Lite, Note 3 Plus and the recently unveiled Coolpad Max.
As expected, the Coolpad Cool VR 1X will be an Amazon exclusive product just like the other smartphone from the Chinese OEM. It’s worth noting that the Virtual Reality headset from Coolpad is one of the first accessories launched by the brand in India. Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad however has mentioned that the company plans to bring more of its accessories to India later this year. This includes powerbanks as well as a smartwatch.
“According to a recent report, the global VR market is expected to touch an estimated $120 billion by 2020 and India, with its huge smartphone base, is set to become the largest VR market. The timing is perfect for the launch of wearable products in India and with our superior technology offering, we are confident in generating favorable response in this segment as well like we did in the smartphones segment,” added Syed Tajuddin.
