At the Display Week conference in San Francisco this week, Samsung Electronics showed off some progression in screen technology for the consumer tech market. Hidden away amongst the new Smart TV sets, smartphones and desktop monitors, was a stunning 4K UHD 5.5-inch smartphone display intended for use in virtual reality.
With the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge living up to its hype, Samsung has also announced a new Gear VR Innovator Edition headset for the new phones. We take a close look at the contraption, right after the jump.
There's scarcely an area of the mobile industry that Samsung has not touched upon, with the company having already delivered multiple smartwatches since launching the Galaxy Gear last year. With Google Glass gathering steam ahead of its release early next year and Facebook having recently acquired Oculus's VR technology, Samsung is angling for a piece of the pie with a virtual reality headset of its own, and apparently, the so-called Gear VR will be showcased at IFA. The notion of an imminent VR headset is nothing new, but now, we have some images to mull over, and below, you can check them out.
