Huawei's Daydream VR headset very close to unveiling, here are some pictures of its controller

Google kind of jumped the gun on Huawei’s Daydream VR back in January, but the year is almost over and the accessory is nowhere to be seen. Although the Chinese company doesn’t have too many Daydream-ready smartphones available on the market, its VR headset will most likely work with other brands as well.

Currently, Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9 are the only smartphones that have been certified to support Daydream VR. Also, the newly launched Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro could soon be certified as well.

Well, it appears that Huawei’s Daydream VR …

New type of magnetic controller for VR headsets detailed in Samsung patent application

Samsung is already a major player in the developing mobile VR space, as the tech giant has sold more than 5 million units of its Gear VR headsets. The popularity of the gadget can be attributed to the fact that it’s relatively affordable and Samsung’s love for bundling it alongside its flagship smartphones. 
Although a solid product, the Gear VR currently lacks positional tracking and its controller is nowhere as advanced as some of its popular competitors such as the HTC Vive, PSVR, and Occulus Rift. 
It …

Here's a closer look at the new Gear VR controller

When Google introduced the Daydream View, the biggest thing that stood out to us was its dedicated controller – a simple device that could be used as both a playback remote and a game controller, thanks to its built-in motion sensing capabilities. We found it to be a much better solution for interacting with virtual interfaces than other then-current solutions (e.g., stare at something until it registers your input or use a cumbersome d-pad-like thing on the side of the headset).

In a bid to keep up with the competition, Samsung and Oculus announced a new version …

Samsung will soon offer a Gear VR controller

Samsung will start selling a new bundle of its Gear VR headset, bundled with a brand-new controller. The bundle will include the 2016 version of the Gear VR, co-developed together with Oculus, which was released together with the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7, with the only notable difference being the addition of a new strap designed to also hold the controller.

As for the controller itself, it’s more reminiscent of the HTC Vive’s, rather than Oculus’ own Rift controller, as it features a circular touch pad with only a few physical buttons. It was …
