Samsung New Device VR

Samsung is working hard on its next VR headset. It will be a stand-alone VR headset with an outrageous 2000ppi OLED display.

Korean news source Naver had said all this. The report adds that the higher resolution OLED display will help remove the dizziness and nausea.

A few months back at MWC 2017, Samsung privately showcasing stand-alone VR headsets to its partners. The stand-alone aspect would mean that, such headsets would contain their own processor, dispaly, and storage components based on smartphone technology. They would run entirely independently of any other hardware.

Several technology firms are working on stand-alone VR hardware, especially Google. But this is the first time we are hearing of Samsung actually having a product in the works. However, according to new reports it seems Samsung will have a substitute in the stand-alone VR headset space. HTC has officially announced its new second-generation Vive headset. It works independently of any other device and instead of dependent on a PC for power it uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC.

There are a few points to be considered. HTC confirmed that the Vive Standalone will be powered by the firm's own VivePort content ecosystem, which does not mean it’s the only option, it may also support Google's Daydream and/or Google Play items, but time will tell. The other problem is that it will be a China’s solely device, there was some slight conclusion, and it might roll out to a wider market in coming date.
