Lenovo is working on a new standalone Virtual Reality headset called Mirage VR S3, but it will not be marketed in the mainstream market to consumers. Instead, this is a corporate product that is intended to be used by classroom teachers or administrators.

The product first appeared in a patent application for a product code Lenovo VR3030S. In company documents, it is identified exactly as a new standalone headset for Virtual Reality.
This means that, just like Mirage Solo or Oculus Quest, it does not require the user to connect it to a computer or smartphone. Instead, the VR glasses themselves already have a built-in processor that is capable of rendering the content that will be displayed.
Mirage Solo was not very successful on the market and depended on the now defunct Google Daydream VR platform. To prevent the Mirage VR S3 from having the same fate, Lenovo should use a proprietary platform developed for the educational market.
According to Lenovo, the product will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and runs on the Android operating system. Its screens bring a resolution of 1920 x 2160 pixels for each eye, while the device is powered by a 4200mAh battery.
The Virtual Reality headset is charged using a USB Type-C cable and even comes with a simple control to allow interaction with your software.
