A new report claims Google will reveal a standalone "Android VR" headset sometime next week as part of its Google I/O developer conference. At the moment, Google simply offers the most basic form of virtual reality with its Google Cardboard viewers.
The claims come from veteran tech journalist Peter Rojas on his Twitter feed
Android VR will definitely be announced next week, and from what I've heard will be less powerful than the Vive or Rift.— Peter Rojas (@peterrojas) May 11, 2016
@kesslerio I don't have more specifics, but multiple sources have told me that it offers better experience than Gear VR.— Peter Rojas (@peterrojas) May 11, 2016
Rojas did not offer any further details on "Android VR", such as price tag or a release date. Android Central will be on hand at Google I/O to get all the news from the developer conference next week.
