It’s also making a second headset just for China.

Hugo Barra, head of VR at Facebook, has just announced at Qualcomm’s CES press conference that Oculus has partnered with Xiaomi to make its first Oculus Go headset. It’ll also make a second Oculus Go headset especially for the Chinese market called the Mi VR Standalone. Both headsets will be built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile VR platform, and will ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset.

The Mi VR Standalone looks very similar to the Go, and shares the same core features. It also supports the Oculus Mobile SDK and existing Oculus developers should be able to port content over to the Mi headset relatively seamlessly. According to Xiaomi, it’s already working with Oculus developers to localize existing content and bring it to the Mi VR Store in China.

The Oculus Go, if you don’t recall, is a $199 VR headset announced by Facebook and Oculus last year. That makes it one of the cheapest VR solutions on the market, as it doesn’t require a phone or a PC. There’s no word yet on when it’ll be released, but as the FCC filing for the Oculus Go just popped up a few days ago, it’ll probably be very soon.
