What we know about it at the moment is that its 5.7 inches wide diagonally, which will allow you to place the newly launched ZenFone 3 Deluxe into it and the VR headset will supposedly be launched next year.

The leather strap attached to the headset looks similar to the strap of the ZenWatch and its looks remind us of the Samsung Gear VR in terms of the controls on the side as well as ZTE’s own VR headset, the latter is considered a Google Daydream-ready headset.

This latest VR headset reveal confirms that VR headsets are quickly becoming the must-have accessories for mobile devices. We can’t say much at the moment about the gadget but how are you liking its looks?
