The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus just got a massive VR upgrade

01 Agosto 2017, 10:46 | Bibiana Flor

It isn't as high quality as, say, the Oculus Rift, but it's theoretically good enough in terms of immersiveness to get people enthusiastic about mobile VR.

Images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 have been leaked by Evan Blass, a well known and reliable leaker.

The two phones have had quite the journey to get to where we are today when it comes to Google's VR solution. It goes without saying that Galaxy S8 lineup is among the most popular flagships of 2017 and it is only beneficial for Daydream VR to debut on them.

The company has not removed the position of the fingerprint sensor on the back of the smartphone and it remains dangerously close to the dual camera setup on the back. By making Daydream VR available for Galaxy S8 duo, the popularity of Google's VR would increase all the more.

For the unaware, Google unveiled the Daydream project back at Google I/O 2016 and released the first hardware alongside the Google Pixel phones in October 2016. Samsung recently re-launched the infamous Galaxy Note 7 in its home turf Korea and is calling it the Galaxy Note Fan Edition. Lenovo and HTC's Vive team - the latter of course responsible for the PC-powered HTC Vive - were both said to be working on Daydream units. On the front, rumors suggest the phablet will feature an 8MP resolution autofocus selfie snapper with 1440p Quad HD video recording. Google has now announced that Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will now support Daydream VR. Its location seems to be inconvenient since users can smudge the camera's lens or it was simply difficult for some to reach.
