Las month I reviewed VR SKY CX-V3 Android virtual reality headset based on Allwinner H8vr octa-core SoC, and based on a report from Netbook Italia at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, PiPo will launch a device looking exactly the same but featuring a much more powerful Rockchip RK3399 processor, next month for about $200.
Beside Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core SoC with two cores ARM Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A53, and a Mali-T864MP4 graphics, Pipo V5 VR headset will support 4K video with HEVC/H.265, H.264 and VP9 video codec support, features 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, one USB type C port, one USB 2.0 host port, a microSD slot, an audio jack, and a 5.5″ Full HD (1920×1080) IPS display. The headset will also include sensors such as an accelerometer and s gyroscope.
Just like VR SKY CX-V3, it will include power, back and Nibiru buttons, and a touchpad. One important features missing from VR SKY CX-V3 wiull be present in PiPo V5: an adjustable interpupillary distance (IPD) thanks to a wheel to adjust the eye distance and the focus.
Pipo V5 is said to be the first RK3399 all-in–one VR headset, and you should be able to purchase it in November for $199.
