Google Daydream VR Phone Lineup To Expand With Samsung Galaxy S8 And LG’s Next Flagship

At Google’s I/O 2017, the business has verified that its Daydream VR platform is actually really going to help a lot more products in the foreseeable future.

Joining the lineup of compatible phones are actually the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus this summer and LG’s next flagship, that is actually anticipated to roll out during the 2nd half of 2017.

Galaxy S8, LG Phone To Get Daydream VR Support

This development arguably does not come as much surprise, as well as several customers actually managed to call it, never to mention a Galaxy S7 was spotted working Daydream VR back in November 2016.

Surprisingly enough, while others predicted the outcome properly, several did not quite get it right. For the shoot, the speculations were within reason, however.

Just the same, what this shows us is actually Samsung has finally jumped on the Daydream bandwagon.

Meanwhile, it is still not clear what the very first LG phone to help Daydream VR is, though it really well might be the V30. Nevertheless, the business has not laid out any plans just yet, therefore no one can definitely say for certain at this particular point.

“In October, we launched Daydream View, a VR headset that’s comfortable and easy to use. Today, there are lots of Daydream-ready phones available to choose from. And there are more coming-including the Galaxy S8 and [S8 Plus], which will be Daydream-ready with a software update this summer, and LG’s next flagship phone, which will launch later this year,” Google says.

Current Daydream VR Lineup

Simply to be very clear, various other non Pixel cell phones which support Daydream VR include things like Motorola’s Moto Z and Moto Z Force, Huawei’s Mate nine Pro and Porsche Design Mate nine, and ZTE’s Axon seven, which may be considered the affordable means to find in on the VR action at 1dolar1 400 a pop.

Another unit in tow will be the unreleased Asus ZenFone AR, aka the next Tango phone – next to the Lenovo Phab two Pro, to be precise. The same as the arrival of Daydream VR to the Galaxy S8, it is slated for a summer release too.

Standalone Daydream VR Headsets

The great news does not end with smartphones also, as Google has announced standalone Daydream VR headsets. Lenovo and htc Vive are set to release several of the very first products.

“Daydream will soon also support a new category of VR devices, which we call standalone VR headsets … The hardware is fully optimized for VR, and features a new headset tracking technology called WorldSense. WorldSense enables positional tracking, meaning the headset tracks your precise movements in space — and it does this all without any external sensors to install,” Google says.

In order to sum things up, Google has a plans in store for the augmented and virtual reality area, and when to the platform for smartphones, it is going well beyond the Pixel.
