Lenovo has launched the Vibe K4 Note in India priced at Rs 11,999/- but what we did not expect was the launch of AntVR headset. The mobile company has joined hands with the startup to introduce the virtual reality (VR) headset, bundled with the phone. Here’s what you should know about the device and whether it’s worth its Rs 1,299 price tag.
The VIBE K4 Note is the first smartphone to be launched with TheaterMax. It allows you to convert any multimedia content on the phone to become immersive, giving users a virtual large screen cinematic experience when viewed through a VR headset.
Exclusive Launch on Amazon.in Online Shopping in India.
How Does It Work?
There’s no rocket science behind how the AntVR works. Fix your phone to the headset from the front. Your phone’s screen will be facing the lens. The headset enhances the 5.5-inch display of Vibe K4 Note, making it look bigger than it actually is.
The Power of Lenovo TheaterMax
The AntVR headset works with the help of software and hardware assistance. The software side of AntVR is controlled by Lenovo’s TheaterMax software which comes built-in with the Vibe K4 Note. Lenovo claims that the technology offers a widescreen cinematic experience for immersive viewing.
It’s too early to take a call on the value of AntVR headset. Whether it brings the right kind of VR experience will only become clear when the content made available is conducive for such an experience.
