Ahead of its speculated September unveiling at the Berlin-based IFA tradeshow, Samsung's oft-rumored VR connected eyeglasses is now showing up in a leaked photo. The glasses, which have also gone by the name of Gear VR, is now shown in a leaked image published by The Verge that details how it will connect with a Samsung phone.
The wearable headset is also known by its code name of Project Moonlight and is described as resembling Google's Cardbox where the device's lenses can be coupled with a smartphone display to transport users "into an immersive world."
The VR glasses has a detachable lid that would hold the phone up in place to user's eyes along with a focus dial on top.
Besides the lenses, Project Moonlight appears to have a focus dial and may have a Micro USB connection to the phone. The headset is pictured here next to a Galaxy S5, but given the positioning alongside the Note 4 launch, it's almost certain that the newest phone in Samsung's smartphone stable will be compatible. A lid appears to be used to hold the phone in place once it's connected.
While Facebook-owned Oculus was rumored to be collaborating with Samsung on the project, the publication admits that Oculus' involvement with the VR glasses is unknown at this point.
In addition to the Gear VR, Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is widely expected to be announced at IFA. Are you excited for this companion accessory? What do you hope to use the Gear VR for?
