Features & Pricing
The VR M2 is designed with an onboard Samsung Exynos 7420 processor that works with a PC or standalone, and uses a Samsung 2K 2560 x 1440 pixel display OLED display which is Android powered. Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 3,000 mAh battery, complimenting the 5.7-inch screen which gives a 96° field of view.
Refresh rate is reported to be in the region of 60 and 75 Hz.
Preorder pricing is set at around $620, which compares favourably with its most obvious competitor the Gear VR if you take into account the cost of a suitable Samsung smartphone.
Of course the M2 can’t compete with the processing power of the higher end PC-driven headsets, but at this sort of pricing you wouldn’t be expecting it to anyway.
The big problem could be whether potential buyers see any real benefit to choosing a headset that delivers a similar experience to cheaper smartphone powered models, though maybe ‘similar’ is the operative word here with the M2 able to offer a delay of just 19ms. This delay is only currently matched by the Oculus Rift.
What About The Content?
The technical capability of any VR device is worthless without a range of content to go with it. DeePoon has partnerships with various worldwide content developers that give it a library of over 100 VR games at the outset, with more planned.
DeePoon M2 users will also have access to the Pengke User Community, which is a route for technical support and sharing of resources.
