The Mi VR headset comes with a hardware-level motion sensor along with a 9-axis inertial motion controller, something which the first VR device lacked. The new Mi VR differs from the original VR Play or VR 3D Glasses (as it was called in international markets) is the design language. The new VR headset is in plastic and features contemporary design, while the older device looked like the Google Cardboard VR headset and used materials like Spandex and Lycra.

Currently, there are over 500 panoramic videos, 30 VR apps, and over 200 registered developers for the MIUI VR. The Mi VR comes with system level optimizations and when coupled with a high -performance smartphone, Xiaomi says it results in a 16ms ultra-low latency which essentially means less motion-sickness.
