Following on from the official announcement that the new Oculus Go standalone virtual reality headset is now available to purchase from online retailers priced at $199. Oculus founder and ex-employee Palmer Luckey has tweeted a Oculus Go teardown revealing the components and technology incorporated into the latest headset created by Facebook owned Oculus.
The Oculus Go headset is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and is fitted with integrated speakers that are positioned in the hinge of the headset side straps.The integrated battery within the Oculus Go-ahead set appears to be a single 18650 similar to that used in many laptop computers and is rated to provide from 2 to 2.5 hours of use on a single charge. Other interesting components include a processor which has been overclocked to allow for a maximum 72Hz refresh something the previously released Samsung Gear VR headset can’t do.
You can expect more teardown is to be made available from the likes of the team at iFixit which is sure to provide a more in-depth look at the standalone VR headsets repair ability, build quality and components.
