2K AMOLED display
The VR glasses used one 5.7 inches big and in 2560 1440 x pixels resolution AMOLED display from Samsung, Thus, the DeePoon E3 offers at least a higher resolution than for example an HTC Vive. By using an AMOLED panel, the manufacturer promises a richer color reproduction with a particularly rich black. The refresh rate the display is attached 70 Hz, Especially for a fluid VR experience, a high refresh rate is crucial. With 70 Hz, the DeePoon E3 sets comparatively low (Vive & Rift 90 Hz), but should still allow for a smooth VR experience when exploiting the 70 pictures per second. The lower limit is approximately at 60 frames-per-second. Sony's Playstation VR shows that there are now also VR headsets that support 120 Hz.
Field of view and Fresnel lenses
field of vision is maximum 110 degree and is therefore on par with the well-known brand headsets. Through the use of special Fresnel lenses, the manufacturer promises to reduce the screen screen effect caused by the large magnification of the display and a reduction in so-called light streaks, a frequent re-drawing of the image. The pupillary distance can be customized between 54 and 74 mm be set. A short or farsightedness is not compensated by the lenses and also a compensation via the display is not possible.
Sensors and SteamVR

Interesting is the support of SteamVR, In addition, the DeePoon E3 also supports the Chinese gaming platform VROnline, Whether the commissioning of the E3 turns out to be just as complicated as with the DeePoon E2, will have to show. However, you will not be able to avoid the installation of a Chinese driver.
