This might be Samsung’s upcoming VR headset

Samsung's Gear VR headset

Samsung’s VR headset first leaked as a 3D render a few weeks ago, but now we’re getting our first look at the real thing. At least that’s what the Verge is reporting.

It’s not quite as sleek as the earlier render but it’s definitely a VR headset, and one that’s reminiscent of the Oculus Rift — which makes sense because both companies are rumoured to be working together on the project.

There’s no word on when this will be officially unveiled by Samsung, but if the headset is already at this stage then it shouldn’t be very long until we at least see beta models. Hopefully we’ll see something at IFA next month. [The Verge via Engadget]
