Didn’t care about the new Google Home Mini we just revealed? How about the new Daydream View, Google’s latest VR headset? Here!
While we don’t have many details on this unit, it’s obvious that we are looking at new colors: Charcoal, Fog, and Coral. The unit looks less soft and potentially more rugged. The previous Daydream View (our review) had a cloth, jersey like finish, whereas this appears to be more of a nylon or at least a material that may be able to withstand our nerd sweat over a longer period of time. The design also seems a bit cleaner this time around. The controller is back again..
To see what I mean, here is the old vs. this new unit:
Old vs. New
The new Google Daydream View will cost $99, which is a $20 bump over the original. Does that mean upgrades inside? I’d assume so, though we don’t have that info just yet.
