Samsung has officially thrown its hat into the VR ring with the latest announcement of the GearVR. This VR headset was in development alongside the Oculus Rift, but this device is built around the Android platform.
“We are thrilled to reveal the Gear VR Innovator Edition, a state-of-the-art mobile VR experience powered by Oculus,” says John Carmack, Chief Technology Officer at Oculus. “The deep technical partnership with Samsung has enabled us to create a virtual reality headset with world class resolution and performance, all on a completely mobile platform.”
There is no release information available, but we’ll certainly see more of this product soon.
