Along with launching the K4 Note phablet, Lenovo today also launched a virtual reality headset called the ANTVR. This headset is priced at Rs 1,299 and will be available exclusively via Amazon India from January 19 onwards. Alternatively, you can also buy the phablet and VR headset together, and the bundle will cost you Rs 12,499. The Lenovo K4 Note is priced at Rs 11,999.
At the launch, Lenovo compared the ANTVR with other headsets like the Google Cardboard and the Oculus Rift. It features aspherical lens with a viewing angle of 100 degrees, and also works if the user is wearing glasses. It is compatible with all Lenovo smartphones with display sizes ranging from 5-inches to 6-inches and can be controlled either via an earphone or Bluetooth controller.
One of the talking points on the new Lenovo K4 Note is a feature called ‘TheaterMax technology’. This feature essentially converts any multimedia content on the phablet into a virtual reality experience. Be it games or videos, TheaterMax can convert them into “immersive large screen experience boasting smooth graphics, life-like surround sound and responsive 3D gameplay.”
As mentioned above, the ANTVR headset was launched today alongside the Lenovo K4 Note. The phablet is priced at Rs 11,999 and features a 5.5-inch 1080p, MediaTek MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage along with a microSD card slot.
It also includes a 13-megapixel f/2.2 rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,300mAh battery, FM Radio, fingerprint scanner and dual front-facing 1.5W speakers. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, NFC, and on the software front, it runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
