The Gear VR may be Samsung's virtual reality headset [Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia)]

(Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Throwing their hat into the ring, Samsung has in store an upcoming virtual reality headset, which they may call the Gear VR.

It was earlier reported that Samsung was collaborating with Oculus in developing a VR headset, with the Korean manufacturers would be providing the displays while the other party provided software. With little details to go on, the lack of a Galaxy branding suggests that Samsung’s VR headset may not even run Android. While Oculus is targetted towards gamers in general, Samsung is taking aim at a wider audience.

Furthermore, Samsung is said to be considering a dockable device that uses an existing smartphone display as the screen. This is to apparently to lower the overall costs for the device, as not many consumers are willing to part with so much money for untested technology. What about you readers? Are you keen on getting yourself a piece of virtual reality? Source: SamMobile (c) 88 2014. All rights reserved. Provided by SyndiGate Media Inc. (
