Another strong indicator of China’s readiness for the adoption of Virtual and Augmented Reality apps is that over 100 startups focus on VR headsets, which can benefit from prominent and highly acclaimed VR vendors such as 3Glasses, Deepoon, Hypereal, Pico and Pimax. Zheng also sees a huge potential in integrating VR and AR software with smartphone solutions of leading Chinese vendors, such as Huawei Technologies, Lenovo Group, and Xiaomi.
Also, we should not underestimate the global success of Chinese tech giants such as Alibaba, Chukong, HTC, Shanda, and Tencent. These successful brands disrupt the Chinese tech scene, thus impacting both the development of AR/VR apps and hardware. For example, upon Microsoft’s release of Hololens, their hardware partners will be 3Glasses, Lenovo, Dell and Acer.
Therefore, the similar trend regarding software and hardware is going to happen in China as in the rest of the world. A huge variety of headsets is here to satisfy different business and individual users, be that high-end or mid-range whereas it is high time for creating mind-blowing content across different industries and verticals.
