The Pimax portal brings dramatic technical improvements to the visual experience, latency and hardware design. This is the world’s first handheld device with 4K Resolution with a smooth 144Hz refresh rate, which is much higher than 90% of devices on the market, and uses VR technology to provide ASW that lowers latency to less than 20ms.

A set of lenses has 27PPD and offers a field of view of 100 degrees, which is very suitable for VR experiences. The second set offers 40PPD and a 60 degree field of view to ensure users can watch high-definition movies when traveling or on the go.

This offers an amazing 140 degree field of view that makes users feel like they have stepped straight into the virtual world. Finally, Pimax is also developing the Portal Social Edition, which includes eye-tracking and face-tracking, allowing Portal to provide a natural social experience.
