LG reveals the VR 360 at MWC - a VR headset that's doing things differently

Strap it right on

Product: LG VR 360 | Manufacturer: LG
 
LG has thrown its hat into the VR ring at MWC, with the announcement of the LG 360 VR.

It's compatible with LG's latest flagship Android phone, the G5, but it does things differently to the mobile VR headsets we've seen so far.

Rather than slotting your phone into the goggles, the 360 VR has its own independent screens.

You plug the phone in using USB-C and then the headset projects things into your eyes using two independently focus-adjustable 1080p OLED screens.

It means the device is a lot less cumbersome than the likes of the Gear VR. It's sort of the size of a pair of over-sized glasses, and it allows you to VR in more cramped places.

Additionally, having the phone in your hand lets you use it as a touchscreen controller during your VR experience, which opens up all sorts of possibilities that other mobile solutions would next extra peripherals to realise.



You'll need to use your own earphones to listen to anything, but you can connect them to your phone using Bluetooth to minimise the number of wires you're dragging around with you.

Right now the headset will only work with Android devices running the Snapdragon 820 processor, but as USB-C spreads to other devices, there's a good chance you'll be able to use it with handsets other than the LG G5.

The VR 360 is set to land in April, alongside the G5. LG hasn't announced a price just yet, but we will of course let you know when it does.
