HTC & Lenovo VR Headsets To Launch With Possibly High Cost

According to an exclusive by Variety, Google could be set to launch a new standalone virtual reality device at the upcoming Google I/O 2017 developers conference.

These standalone headsets will aim to utilize the convenience afforded by portable smartphone VR without the current constrictions holding back consumers like lack of physical space or incompatible software specs.

At the Google I/O keynote this Wednesday, Google announced that it's teaming up with two hardware manufacturers for making the next step in Virtual Reality - producing a standalone Daydream VR headset. Neither headset has been named, but HTC's model appears to incorporate both its own "Vive" trademark, as well as the Google "Daydream" name.

Google claims the feature will be smart enough so that users could auto-share only specific photos to their partner or a friend. Pichai also announced that the machine learning-driven Smart Reply feature is coming to Gmail on iOS and Android as well.

"We are thrilled to once again work with Google and offer a powerful premium Snapdragon experience for devices on the Daydream platform", said Keith Kressin, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Google has collaborated with Qualcomm to develop and build on the design for the standalone headset.

"With Tango, devices can track motion and understand distances and their position in the real world", said Bavor.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has claimed "some teams are on holiday" and expressed hope all opponents for all teams fight hard. I never saw one player in my life go to the pitch and not try to win the game.

There's no word yet as to how much standalone Daydream VR handsets will fetch, but reports suggest they will fetch around $300 (£230). But the company, better-known for its manufacture of Android phones, said in a statement that "Vive represents the best VR experience in market, whether it is PC-powered or stand-alone devices".

Google's I/O conference has been full of all sorts of exciting announcement. The first Google VR headsets will go on sale this year, though the official date is not known yet.

Given that the Daydream headset isn't arriving immediately, we believe there is adequate time available for the concerned ones to churn out more contents.
