Pricing isn't finalized, but Lenovo tells VentureBeat that the Mirage Solo will cost under $400 in the U.S. and the Mirage Camera will cost under $300.
For capturing 180-degree VR content, the Mirage Camera is a compact $299.99 device which has two fisheye lenses in front of a dual 13-megapixel camera setup. And from there you can view it in the Daydream View, or if you have the Mirage Solo, you can pop out the micro SD card (a good reason to use a micro SD card versus the internal storage) and put it into the Mirage Solo and view your content. It's a pretty simple, but very useful camera. A tripod thread is built into the bottom, so it is obvious that Lenovo wants you to take this with you wherever you go.
The Mirage Solo is priced at $449.99 and is expected to go on sale in the second quarter of 2018. And strikingly, it has six degrees of freedom (6DOF), which means that, like with the HTC Vive but unlike with all smartphone VR so far, you can actually walk around in your VR experiences. "WorldSense tracking and Mirage Solo'shigh-performancee graphics mean that the objects you see will stay fixed in place just like in the real world, no matter which way you tilt or move your head". Along with this device, Lenovo has launched the Lenovo Mirage Camera with Daydream technology to let the user capture their own VR video in a broad 180 degrees and then watch it on Lenovo Mirage Solo. There's no debating it. You have to shove your smartphone into a headset, there are some weird UI things about operating it once it's in there, and you get interrupted by notifications sometimes. It didn't provide any other availability specifics.
We look forward to testing more games and apps, as well as its 4,000mAh integrated battery to see how long it can last under pressure.

The Mirage Camera will compete with 360 cameras, which give a much more complete VR experience. Goslin said Disney may also release additional accessories in the future. See the most important products that will impact businesses and professionals. We don't know that, either.
