Samsung Gear VR News: Samsung to go all out in 2017 with Gear VR 2 and New Display Technology


Samsung Gear VR could be rather weaker than HTC vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, but when it comes to sales of the mobile-powered headset, it’s well ahead in the race. Latest Samsung Gear VR News reports suggest that the South Korean company is looking to provide a big boost to the next installment, Gear VR 2.

It is believed that Samsung has already shown off the device to a select few at the MWC 2017, while none of the reports are confirmed.

The next-gen Gear VR device in fact has an integrated display, something those current Gear VR headsets do not have.

Instead, there is a opening inside in which a user fits his Samsung Smartphone and view it via goggles built into the headset.

The company is also said to be boosting the visual reliability of the device as well. As per a report by Korea Herald, a 1500ppi device is soon expected to be released.
