Scheduled for release this fall, French company Alcatel’s Vision VR headset expects to join the fray of other recently released virtual reality models, ever-moving toward standalone, wireless functionality. However, distinguishing it from Samsung’s Gear VR, Microsoft’s HoloLens, and others, is that the Vision operates without the need of a smartphone. It’s processing power includes two 3.8-inch, 1080p (1,920 by 1,080 pixels) AMOLED displays rendering a 120-degree field of view and an octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM. Alcatel will also be releasing its own 360 camera with views comparable to those captured by the Oculus Rift, Gear VR, and Google Cardboard. While Alcatel’s Vision enters the market with competitive, unique features, its 360 camera expects to compete in pricing rather than in functionality, with an estimated low cost of $110 (99 euros).
