With Facebook being banned in China, Oculus turns to Xiaomi to push the global launch of Oculus Go.
Both are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 Mobile VR Platform and share the same core hardware features and design. Xiaomi is working directly with Oculus developers to localize some of the most popular content from the Oculus Store and to bring it to the Mi VR Store in China.
The Oculus Go is set to release in early 2018, starting at a price of $199.
The decision may have been made since Facebook is still banned in China.
