This Could Be Our First Look at the Samsung Gear VR (Virtual Reality) Headset

There was a rumor before speculating that Samsung was in collaboration with Oculus VR to co-create a device that will compete with other Virtual Reality devices, and just today Sammobile published an article that gives more reality to the rumor with the picture (above) of the alleged VR gadget that Samsung and Oculus VR are working on and said it would be called Samsung Gear VR.

Sammobile added that the Gear VR will be announced later this year at IFA and will be unveiled alongside the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 phablet. This VR device is not going to be a full Virtual Reality headset like the Oculus Rift but more of an accessory to a Galaxy device to experience the nature of VR environment in a much more affordable way, so its like a plastic and more realistic version of Google Cardboard which was just unveiled last month by Google.

We have to wait until that IFA 2014 takes place to see if this image and the Samsung Gear VR is a real one. And if it is, let's just hope that Samsung will not put a very high price tag on this device and let us also hope that by the time it is official there will be more VR-based Android apps ready to download and content ready to enjoy.
