Update, October 27 : LeTV is conducting a conference in the Beijing, China where company is all set to announce number of new products. The entertainment firm is calling this event as “#DisruptiveFuture”. The LeVR has been showcased by the company on stage.
Earlier, October 19 : LeTV, an online video service based out of China has been branching out of its core business from earlier this year. Jumping to this day, the company has launched several smartphones in China and in doing so company broke some record sales numbers. We even hearing a rumor that company is launching a smartphone next year that would come up with Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB of RAM.
Now in a leak coming straight from FCC showcases the Virtual Reality headset from the company. The Chinese entertainment company doesn’t wants to waste time and is moving forward with many options. It good for competition, as the VR space is still new and isn’t ready for the consumers. FCC stands for Federal Communications Commission, it is an organization that controls the international and interstate regulations for radio, television, wire, satellite and cable.
One of the first companies to develop a Virtual Reality as the Oculus Rift in 2012, which was crowdsourced on the Kickstarter, later bought for around 1 billion dollars by Facebook. There are now many headsets such as Oculus Rift including Samsung GearVR, HTC Vive, AirVR, Razer VR, Carl Zeiss VR One and many more are in the pipeline.
Though, the one thing that all the Virtual Reality headsets lack is the comfortableness to carry it around and an affordable pricing. We liked the Google’s Cardboard VR in terms of that, but it doesn’t give you much control over the phone. Once inserted you just see what has been started, the interface isn’t practical.
The LeVR looks like a promising upgrade to the Cardboard VR; users would have to use their smartphones as the displays and headset would act as an enhanced lens. The difference would be it would come with straps, which should make it comfortable to wear for a long period. The device pictured aside that might be a Bluetooth controller for Headset.
Apart from its online video business, they recently started to manufacture their products in China that includes their TVs as well. The TVs offer access to the LeTV’s streaming services, and already has the Android-based phones to its hardware line-up. We do not know when company would launching their first VR Headset, but it would be pretty soon as the FCC certification has been passed.
