It is no longer news that Xiaomi plans to release a VR headset. Teaser images posted on their Weibo page a few weeks ago was interpreted to mean that the headset will launch on August 1, but surprisingly what was released today is a trailer for the Xiaomi VR headset and not the device itself.
The 51 second long video is of an older man and woman asking questions which are answered by a younger man. While we can’t seem to make out any specific details about the VR headset (let’s hope someone has a better luck at it) we noticed the date at the end of the video; 4th of August, which is Thursday. We believe this is the exact date for the release of the Xiaomi VR Headset.
If you look closely at the screenshot above which was taken from Xiaomi’s Chinese site, you will see that a couple of images with the dates 2nd and 3rd of August are blurred out meaning we’ll be getting more teasers before Thursday’s launch. [source]
