Oculus and Samsung working VR headset for mobiles, report claims

Samsung and Oculus are working together on a new headset, rumours have claimed.

Engadget, citing “sources close to both companies”, reports that the deal will be of benefit to both – Oculus will provide Samsung with early access to its mobile software development kit and will help develop the user interface for the headset, while Samsung will provide Oculus with early access to its upcoming high-resolution OLED screens, which the latter firm plans to integrate into its future headset models.

The screens, which provide a resolution higher than that of Full HD 1080p, will also be used in Samsung’s future smartphone models, the sources added.

The sources also teased some details of Samsung’s rumoured VR headset.

For more details on that, head over to PCR.
