BaoFeng mentioned that the new MoJing 5 will support Micro USB and USB type C, Bluetooth controllers will be included in the package, compared with their previous version and controllers will be paired for customers before shipping,
The MoJing 5 will support phones from 4.7inch to 5.5inches and will required your android device too support OTG(on the go) function.
The MoJing 5 supports range sensor, a power saving feature that activates phone when wearing and can place phone in a “sleep” state when you leave, this feature is also found in the Samsung Gear VR, as Samsung support their own product only and we are curious how MoJing 5 will support different models.
Besides new hardware, BaoFeng have updated their APP and a new release of their VR UI is called Magic UI.
The above information is basic for MoJing 5, frankly speaking, it appears BaoFeng has just copied from Samsung Gear VR, and we are curious to how they are supporting different model phones.
