Google cardboard was launched in 2014 to show everyone out there what VR experience feels like. Since then, Google is working hard to take things to the next step with affordability and reachability in mind.
Let’s revise the whole Google Daydream project and then derive what is really a Standalone Google Daydream headset.
On November 10, 2016, Google introduced the next big thing in the VR history called as Google Daydream. This platform was built into the Android mobile operating system version 7.1 Nougat to give out high-quality VR experience. Note that only some devices are compatible with the Google Daydream VR View. Unlike the cardboard, this product aimed at providing users with a robust and powerful experience of the virtual world.
The Next Step:
Things started to turn around when Clay Bavor, the Vice President of Google VR announced the next steps of Daydream’s journey in Google I/O 2017 event. He dropped the idea of powering VR headsets with phone and started to invest on a standalone Google Daydream experience.
Standalone Google Daydream:
The hype was real for this thing as Google announced that this standalone VR will be free of cables, pc, and phone.
Google partnered with HTC and Lenovo to shock the VR market and make a memorable comeback. Although HTC parted the journey to focus on Vive Focus, Lenovo stood firm to create history.
Lenovo introduced the first Standalone Google Daydream headset called Lenovo Mirage Solo. This headset was packaged with WorldSense, efficient processor, high-quality display and much more.
Features are jotted down below that give you a complete idea of what you get with Standalone Google Daydream.
This technology provides real-time and efficient positional tracking known as 6DOF. Also called as inside-out tracking, you get to experience a natural discovering feel. Furthermore, it also enhances rotational tracking and gives you an overall mind-blowing experience.

The Snapdragon 835 operating inside this Standalone Google Daydream works like a charm to give you lightning fast and controlled experience when you are using or juggling through multiple applications.
Standalone Google Daydream headset’s display refresh rate is clocked at 75Hz with a resolution of 2560×1440 for a single eye to make sure your virtual reality experience is similar to the real world.
Last but not the least, all this performance is achieved through an optimal design that focuses on temperature. Lenovo Mirage Solo keeps everything cool even when you are boosting up the performance gears.
