TCL India launched the 562 smartphone in India last year, and now it has introduced a new VR headset in the country. The company’s new VR Goggles can be purchased alongside the TCL 562 smartphone from Amazon India and select retail outlets across India. The TCL 562 and VR Goggle bundle will cost Rs. 13,999.
For now, the VR headset is only available as a pair with the TCL 562, and cannot be bought standalone. The VR Goggles have a Micro-USB port to connect the TCL 562 seamlessly, and will allow users to stream virtual reality content. Games can also be downloaded onto the device from the VR Store built-in app.
To recall, the TCL 562 was launched at Rs. 10,990 available exclusively on Amazon India, and is now available for Rs. 9,999. This also marks as TCL’s first foray into the Indian offline retail market, and it has appointed Advance Computers as its distributor.
Commenting on the launch, Praveen Valecha, Regional Director, TCL India said in a statement, “We’ve redefined virtual reality and created the best mobile VR experience available today. We see virtual reality driving a revolution in content and experience, and we are thrilled to launch VR device to set the standard for mobile VR and bring this revolutionary product to consumers. To ensure availability in retail we have appointed Advance Computers as our distributor. The product will also be available on the e-commerce channel.”
