However, as the product marketing says, the first 8K VR headset is not true in a real sense. In fact, each eye sees a picture of 4K resolution. Despite displaying the 4K resolution image at each eye does not make sense to have a resolution more than 4K just like if you are watching a movie on a 4K HDTV and extend your display to more three 4K resolution HDTV’s will not increase resolution more than 4K.

It’s not the very high-resolution VR headset but it also does provides the large field of view FOV that is about 200 Degrees, this FOV is about two times higher than the FOV provided by traditional VR headset manufacturers. Its screen can cover an entire view of a man with such an angle that takes approximately 240 degrees. This large FOV provides a great VR experience that no other vendor can compete. The large size 53 mm lenses provide a clear image with great immersion, thus increasing VR experience with less stress on eyes.
