Its 2k res­o­lu­tion dis­play en­ables users to have bet­ter im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ences with less dis­tor­tion. It works by plug­ging into a per­sonal com­puter or when connected with a portable ex­ter­nal de­vice called D1. The smart­phone­shaped D1 has a 1.6Hz CPU, 32GB of stor­age and a 3,000mAh bat­tery good for two hours. Dlodlo V1 is priced the equiv­a­lent of $599, and comes with a re­fresh rate at 90Hertz that elim­i­nates dizzi­ness or ver­tigo.

The com­pany also makes cus­tom­ized soft­ware for Ozo, which en­ables real-time 3-D view­ing. Con­sumers can play back the con­tent they have made, elim­i­nat­ing the need to pre-as­sem­ble a panoramic im­age. Ozo may re­tail for the equiv­a­lent of $45,000. Chi­nese smart­phone maker Cool­pad Group Ltd has un­veiled a new­phone to tar­get young con­sumers who love watch­ing movies and soap op­eras. Equipped with dual cam­eras, the Cool 1 is ar­guably one of the most cost-ef­fi­cient hand­sets at the price of 1,099 yuan ($165), far cheaper than com­pa­ra­ble mod­els in the mar­ket. For ex­am­ple, the start­ing price of a sim­i­lar range of phones by Huawei Tech­no­log­i­cal Co Ltd is around 2,000 yuan. LeEco said its smart­phones in the same price range as the Cool 1 can de­liver roughly the same im­age-tak­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The Cool 1 comes with a mem­ber­ship of a ma­jor Chi­nese video-stream­ing ser­vice that al­lows users to watch TV shows and movies.
