Android VR is Not a Headset Says Peter Rojas

Peter Rojas just paddled back on Twitter about his Android VR headset rumor.

Engadget founder Peter Rojas Tweeted that Google will unveil Android VR, a headset better than Samsung Gear VR, but not as good as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Now he just posted that he wished to be more clear about this. He says now that Google will unveil Android VR, but not a headset at the Google I/O 2016 later this week.

He still claims that Google is working on a VR headset but it will not be announced this week. Android VR already got leaked by Google itself. The announcement will though likely be a special Android based virtual reality platform and not hardware.

An Android VR headset would be bad news for Samsung, but great news for all Android users. Android VR would enhance mobile virtual reality for all Android users as the Gear VR does for Samsung smartphone owners. It would also force Apple to finally offer virtual reality functionality.

The Google I/O 2016 will kick off on May 18 in Mountain View, California. Peter Rojas is apparently on vacation in Alaska. That's the most likely reason it took him days to react to the media storm his tweets triggered about the Android VR headset.
