Last Year, Xiaomi had launched the Mi VR Play, it’s design was mostly inspired by the Google Cardboard VR set, that was covered in lycra. Later, the company had improved and launched the Mi VR, it was better than the previous as it had a motion controller. Now, Xiaomi has announced the Mi VR Play 2, these VR glasses get refreshed rectangular design from last year and instead has a pill shaped front and an overall curved profile.
The new design is probably is smaller in size than that of its predecessor. Another major change is the use of a single elastic nylon headband instead of adjustable straps and the removal of the zipper.
The absence of a zipper might not be acceptable to a few users as it provided a way to keep your phone completely hidden inside the Mi VR Play. Promotional images for the Mi VR Play 2 shows the phone sticking out at one side, although that might not happen if you are using a phone like the Mi 5, Mi 5s or Mi 5C.
