Google has launched its VR headsey, the Daydream View, in India. The headset is listed on the Google online store but isn’t actually available there. For now, Flipkart is the only official retailer for this headset.
Daydream View is Google’s first VR headset. It lets you plug in your phone and uses the display and sensors on the phone to power your VR experience. There is also a wireless remote available with additional buttons and sensors for further control. The headset is made out of breathable fabric for a comfortable fit.
The headset currently is only compatible with select smartphones, including the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Moto Z, ZTE Axon 7, and Huawei Mate 9 Pro. Support for Samsung Galaxy S8 and ASUS ZenFone AR has also been announced and is coming soon.
The Daydream View is priced at INR 6499 ($100) and it is available today in the Slate color.
