Huawei also has a virtual reality headset

Virtual Reality is the big buzzword of the moment and Chinese tech giants Huawei are getting in on the action with their own headset.

Like Samsung's Gear VR it will use one of the company's smartphones to power the experience, with a list so far including the Huawei P9, the P9 Plus and Mate 8. The phone pops into the headset and lets you interact with a few basic buttons.

The headset has been very creatively dubbed Huawei VR and promises 95 degrees of coverage and fairly low latency of 20ms. You won't be able to use glasses inside the unit but the lens inside can adjust for myopia up to minus 7.

It's no surprise that Huawei is creating its own entry point into the VR market and if it works well and is keenly priced it could prove a strong rival to the likes of the Samsung Gear VR, especially as Huawei's market share continues to expand.

There's no word on pricing or availability of the Huawei VR yet.
