The wireless headset does not utilize a smartphone as its display and instead features a fully-functional computer inside of it. Facebook says the headset is “super lightweight,” comes with a high-res-switch LCD screen and spatial audio via a built-in headset. Oculus Go costs $199 USD, slightly more expensive than the Samsung Gear VR ($129 USD), but much cheaper than the Oculus Rift currently at $399 USD.
