Oculus Go VR headset to be made by Xiaomi with Snapdragon 821 processor.

Facebook's standalone virtual reality headset Oculus Go will be made through a partnership with Chinese phone maker Xiaomi, said the social network's vice president for virtual reality, Hugo Barra.

Barra made the announcement on stage during Qualcomm's press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Oculus Go will come equipped with a high end Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. It's the same processor found in top tier devices like the original Google Pixel phones and LG G6.

Xiaomi will also create its own version of a standalone VR headset called the Mi VR Standalone.

Oculus announced the Oculus Go last Oct. 2017 as a standalone and affordable mobile counterpart to their flagship Oculus Rift VR headset. Developer kits were made available in November 2017, with Oculus giving a ballpark price of $199 (around P10,200) for the VR headset. JB
