Of course, with being the first you will want to make sure that some of the techs that makes up your headset has some of the first as well, and that is why the R-1 headset will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon XR2 chip that it will need for the inside out-tracking.

In the R-1, each eye display has one LCD that has a resolution of 1,600 x 1,600 along with a refresh rate of 90hz and that LYNX is claiming a 90° field of view and 18 pixels-per degree.

LYNX also provided some specs such as 128GB of storage, 6GB of Ram, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, integrated stereo audio speakers, controller-free hand-tracking, USB C and about two hours of battery life for “active use”, two B&W cameras, two IR cameras, two visible light RGB cameras, 6DoF tracking, and Eye Tracking that should be using Android and Unity 3D with Passive cooling.
