Samsung Gear VR to be reportedly announced at IFA 2014

Samsung's upcoming virtual reality (VR) headset will be named Gear VR, Sammobile is reporting. Earlier this year, Engadget first reported about Samsung's headset, which is reportedly designed to undercut Sony's Project Morpheus and Oculus's Rift.

Ironically, Sammobile claims that Samsung is working with Oculus to perfect the headset's software, corroborating previous rumors that the Facebook-owned company is teaming up with the South Korean giant.

The Samsung Gear VR will reportedly be announced later this year at IFA 2014. Unlike other VR devices, Samsung's own toy will sport a modular design and will take advantage of the company's Galaxy phones.

The Gear VR will allegedly feature a smartphone dock, a trackpad, and a button that will activate the phone's front-facing camera. This way, users won't have to remove the headset, should they want to see the "real world."

The trackpad can be used to control the phone, Sammobile adds.

Compatible Galaxy phones can connect to the VR via USB 3.0. And, instead of using complex sensors, the VR headset will utilize the phone's accelerometer and gyroscope to deliver the VR experience.

Lastly, Samsung is said to be working on dedicated applications for the headset. The company is even planning to release an SDK of the device to interested developers. Samsung declined to comment on the report.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
