On August 4 Xiaomi launched its first Virtual reality headset Mi VR Play which costs RMB 1, which is almost equal to Ten Indian Rupees. The product has received a spectacular response as 1 million people have registered in just 8 hours on opening the registration lines on August 1.
The company has released Xiaomi VR under the beta testing program and to make a huge customer base before the product is released into the market. The company’s strategic price aimed at enticing enough people to get the VR headset. Democratizing technology is the intention behind most of Xiaomi’s competitively priced products which challenge its competitors.
