This headset boasts specs like ARM Mali G71 MP20 GPY and an M2 dual 2.5 GHz CPU. Samsung also said that the headset will support the 4K resolution at 75fps and WQHD at 90fps. The headset is armed with cameras on the front which will be used for inside-out positional tracking.

Samsung also confirmed that they are implementing eye-tracking technology in this headset. The design also includes hand tracking, voice recognition, and facial recognition. The best feature of this headset will be that user will not need any smartphone or PC to run this as everything that you will need is inside this device.

Samsung might have entered the standalone VR market but it’s not alone. It will have to face the competition from the companies like Intel and Qualcomm as both of them has their own reference design for the standalone headsets and is working on it. Qualcomm has joined hands with Google to release a series of WorldSense positional tracking from companies like HTC and Lenovo.
