New players, means new opportunities

It is not too late to be the one. The VR market is still developing, but with an incredible strength. There are constantly new players and new opportunities for the tourism industry.

Huawei  is a multinational organization working in 172 countries all over the world. It is serving almost one third of the world’s population. On the 15th of April it became part of the market in mobile virtual reality by offering their own VR-Huawei.
It is similar to the Oculus Rift, but with the main difference of including headphones 360 –degree sound field. The VR-Huawei comes with a 1080p screen resolution and is compatible with P9 and Mate 8 smartphones, including all Android as well as iPhone VR games, as they are typically controlled in-app.

Huawei plans to launch a large amount of 360º videos including panoramic tours. It is a great chance for destination, hotels, travel agencies or any kind of organization involved in tourism industry. In addition, due to the fact that the number of suppliers in VR are increasing, it would mean more possibilities, choice and cheaper prices for the customers. This could rise a number of users as well as the higher focus, from a producer perspective, in creating a better VR experience.
