Samsung is working exhaustively, to render a competent stand-alone VR headset, for a long time. In that note, a prototype of the Samsung ExynosVR III, the company’s upcoming stand-alone VR headset, has been publicized by their technology partner Visual Camp.
The naming, ExynosVR III is considered to be an attempt to mark the presence of the ExynosVR I and Exynos VR II, which are the presumed predecessors of the upcoming one. Moreover, this reveals the truth that the manufacturer has spent a significantly long time in the making of this VR headset.
The main highlight of the device is that it is powered by a Mali G71 GPU for Graphics and a hexa-core CPU that is built off of a 10nm process, for providing a sonic power and energy efficiency. The CPU comprises a couple of Samsung M2 CPU cores, clocked at 2.5GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.7GHz.
Moreover, it presumably sports either a Dual WQHD+ display or a 4K display with the refresh rate of 90Hz or 75Hz respectively. The other interesting features are its voice and facial expressions identifying capability. Further, the headset would also feature the Visual Camp’s eye tracking technology, which can enable the device to locate the area, the users’ eyes focus.
With this feature, it will be able to make the focused regions sharply and to reduce the resolutions for the other areas; and will also help in saving the battery. As of now, there is no information about the availability or the price of the VR headset. However, it is expected to be released during the holiday shopping season.
