Samsung is said to be working on its own VR (virtual reality) headset, Engadget reports. Sources with knowledge of Samsung's plans said that the VR headset could be announced this year.
Business Insider was also able to confirm the report through its own insider sources.
Details are limited, but what we do know based on reports is that the VR headset will work with Samsung's mobile devices and that it will be running Android OS and not Tizen.
Assuming that this is true, then Samsung's rumored headset will most definitely rely on Android games, although a major revamped has to be done in order for the games to work flawlessly on the VR headset.
Engadget speculates that the said headset will be wired into phones and tablets to eliminate lag which could break the VR experience.
