According to a report on The Verge website, the new headset is evidently smaller and lighter than products like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. It further addresses that the design of the headset is pretty much similar to Sony PlayStation VR, as it ‘suspends the lenses in front of user’s eyes,’ rather than strapping them in one place.

The report also adds that since the showcased headset is still a prototype, not much is known about the way it works. Lenovo’s new VR headset uses six degrees-of-freedom tracking, according to report. This is basically means that there are no additional camera requirements.

It’s significant that Lenovo has not showcased any motion controllers for the headset, rather than relying on third-party apps based on Windows Holographic platform’s specifications.
