Release dates are not yet set in stone, but FCC filings tell a story of a new Samsung Gear VR smartphone virtual reality headset with a one-handed controller. This single improvement, freeing users from the traditional cumbersome use of a headset touchpad, will expand user capability in the VR world. Designated as SM-R324, the next generation Samsung Gear VR looks should increase positional tracking and enhance controller support. Industry leaders agree these are lacking in today’s leading mobile VR headsets. Also expected with this new version of Gear VR is lighter weight and improved resolution.
