Galaxy S8, S8+ Will Support Daydream VR Later This Year

Google Daydream

At this year's Google I/O event, Qualcomm announced its collaborative design with Google to create a standalone VR headset based on the Daydream VR platform. The new headsets will also be including Worldsense tracking technology, which according to Cal Bavor, the Google VP for VR, will offer dramatically improved tracking.

Google is partnering with HTC, the company behind the Vive, and Lenovo to build the headsets.

United States housing data, political turmoil hit US$; global stocks flat
S&P 500 e-mini futures dropped as much as 0.7 percent overnight before paring the slide to 0.4 percent 90 minutes before the open. Though the White House has denied the allegation, there's mounting unease in markets over the developments in the USA government.

One of the key changes will be an updated interface: Google wants Daydream VR to become more of a full-featured operating system.

Meanwhile, HTC has also confirmed to release the new Daydream VR headset. It's a standalone headset, meaning you don't have to connect it to a PC or any other device, which comes with the added benefit of being wireless. Google announced the new VR headset during its annual Google I/O conference for developers in Mountain View, Calif. LG's next flagship phone, expected to launch later this year, will also support Daydream. The all-in-one headset will require neither a phone nor a PC to operate and combined with the six degrees of freedom, this could well enable it to give users a first of its kind VR experience. The new platform is now on the works and the new VR is scheduled to come out later this year via HTC and Lenovo.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli: We can handle Wembely move
You never say what's going to happen in the future, no one knows, no one can predict it. We also shouldn't be naive, there will be a time when Dele leaves the club.

We haven't exactly heard much with regards to Daydream from Google's partners since the project was first announced past year, with the only high-profile devices being Google's own Pixel devices, the LG G6, Moto Z family and the ASUS ZenFone AR.

"The whole device is designed just for VR", Clay Bavor, Google's head of VR, was quoted by the FT as saying.

Growing up in this industry people always assume that I really like attention, but when you're younger you're much more fearless. Though she felt as though she was "slashing people's dreams", Cyrus said, "Marry, Eff, Kill in that exact order".

Google didn't provide many details of what the actual finished product will look like, other than showing a very minimalist sketch. This essentially describes how Google's Tango system works and that is likely the base code for the new platform called WorldSense.
