I keep reading that in order to offer a pleasant user experience, virtual reality will require high resolution displays (4K or greater), and SoCs fast enough to handle all the extra data processing requirements, but some Chinese manufacturers are instead trying to enter the low end of the market with products such as Allwinner H8vr or HA544 which are way too weak to handle 3D graphics for VR applications in a satisfying manner, but could be good enough for watching 3D and VR video. Eny Technology has gone one step further (down) with EVR01 VR headset based on Rockchip RK3126 quad core Cortex A7 processor combined with a 5″ 1280×720 display.
