IDEALENS K2 is a robust standalone VR headset powered by Samsung Exynos 7420 processor

IDEALENS officially launched its second-generation standalone virtual reality headset earlier this week. It’s a very robust headset that has the main body weight of just 295g. It houses the display, battery, and other hardware in one single package meaning there’s no need to connect it to a computer or a smartphone. Offering a staggering 770ppi the IDEALENS K2 hits the industry benchmark of <17ms low latency and 90Hz high refresh rate.

The IDEALENS K2 is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor coupled with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage with support for external expansion, 3.81-inch 2.5K AMOLED display, and 3,800mAh battery. It provides 120-degree wide-angle Field of View, internal IMU sensor with gesture support, motion tracking, and Wi-Fi connectivity. 4G support will follow in the future. IDEALENS will also provide content for this headset including over one million hours of video and more than 100 games. The company will later release a variant of the K2 virtual reality headset that’s powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8890 processor.

Gear VR was lacking sharpness , images appeared pixelated , lets hope IDEALENS K2 doesnt have that issue…..

This looks like a great idea. I would definitely give the next gen with the 8890 processor a try.

Not a good idea, based on my experience with the S6 on my Gear VR, the 7420 heats up badly after only 10 minutes of use (depending on your territorial weather conditions, Singapore is a mostly hot and humid country).

Conditions would not be same as a phone plugged into a gear VR, it’s not running a mobile phone at the same time, it’s powering a much smaller screen, it won’t heat up to any great extent, it doesn’t need to push the processor as hard, as it’s functions are limited. Totally different operational environment.
