Microsoft recently revealed that HP, Dell, ASUS, Acer, and Lenovo will all be making Windows Mixed Reality headsets. The company is revealing more information about a couple of those headsets at Computex 2017. It has provided more details about the mixed reality headsets that ASUS, Dell, and Lenovo have in the pipeline.
Microsoft has confirmed that Dell is developing a white Windows Mixed Reality headset that has been designed by the company’s Alienware and XPS design teams. It will come with a weight balanced headband, cable routing, cushions that are replaceable, and a flip-up visor. Dell will release it with an affordable price tag this holiday season.a
ASUS seems to be pushing for more advanced technology with its headset. It’s going to have a polygonal 3D cover panel on the front as well as six degrees of freedom tracking. Microsoft didn’t say whether this headset will be released in 2017 so it’s quite possible that it may not arrive until next year.
Last but not the least, Lenovo is working on a Windows Mixed Reality headset which Microsoft says is going to be “incredibly affordable.” It will have built-in sensors for inside-out tracking and a conventional design. It’s also going to be available later this year.
Confirmed prices and release dates have not been revealed as yet but we should get this information at some point later this year.
