Lenovo has a new VR headset kit called the VR Classroom 2. It was first spotted in a US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing, before the company itself tweeted about it.
The Lenovo VR Classroom 2 doesn’t have to be plugged to a phone or PC, since it’s a standalone headset kit. This is quite like the Mirage Solo that was announced two years ago.
But unlike the Mirage Solo, it doesn’t make use of Google’s Daydream VR platform. Instead, it uses the company’s own proprietary platfrom. It is also made for the purposes of education, rather than the general consumer.
Introducing the Lenovo VR Classroom 2, an even smarter solution that empowers teachers and administrators to easily integrate virtual reality lessons into their curriculum.

The headset itself is called the Mirage VR S3. Based on its product page, it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, a 4200mAh battery that charges using USB-C, and a resolution of 1920 x 2160 for each eye with a 75Hz refresh rate. It also comes with 64GB of internal storage, expendable by 256GB via SD card. Bluetooth connectivity is also there.
There’s no indication of if this will be making its way to our shores. But even if it does, because it’s meant for educational uses, it’s unlikely that the Lenovo VR Classroom 2 will appear on shelves.
