Alcatel has recently announced it first ever Virtual Reality headset called Vision. It does not need any smartphone to be connected like any other VR headsets which is something new for the VR world.

According to MSN, the new Alcatel Vision has a built-in mobile device which has a 3.8 inch AMOLED screen display with 1,080 x 1,020 or 2,160 x 2,040 resolution total each. It also has a 3GB RAM and a 32GB of storage with eight-core CPU. It also has an LTE and Bluetooth connection with many sensors attached including an proximity sensor, gyro sensor and accelerometer sensor,

Alcatel Vision design looks more like a helmet that fits around your head instead of the usual straps used by the other VR headsets. The goggles are connected by a pair of elastic plastic arms connected to a back pad. There is also a bulk on the back where its 3,000 mAh battery is located.

The eyewear area of the Alcatel Vision has enough space for the glasses and it has a comfortable fit despite its weight and size. A touchpad is also located on the right side of the headset, the power button is on the top and the volume. It has an Android-base menu system that is typical for VR headsets.

The Challenge For Alcatel's VR Headset

According to iTech Post, the only problem that the Alcatel has for now is that the Alcatel Vision is not related with VR makers like Google's Daydream or Oculus. Alcatel is working on its own app payment system and Unity-based SDK and it is also related to other companies like Fraunhofer and Jaunt VR.

The company will also give preloaded games and some other additional contents on their Alcatel Vision. This will be most likely available at around $500 to $600 price tag which the consumer might consider spending less.
