“The latest specification leak for Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy S7 mobile phone, suggests the device may house a depth-sensing camera, which could be used to provide a form of Gear VR positional tracking.”

The previous devices have been good to the VR experience but there was a specific problem that prevented it from greatness. Its lack of ability to track position. It is essential for the immersion of the virtual reality and without which the user experiences nausea.

Although it is an important part of Samsung’s strategy, the gear VR still lacks content. But the potential that it offers is huge. Imagine the level of excitement you would feel when playing a game on virtual reality or viewing movies with cinematic experience. All that is set to become a reality with the launch of galaxy S7 which will reportedly have a brilliant 2k screen combined with powerful hardware that has never seen before.

The gear VR is also set to have its newest version where you won’t have to put in your phone as it features its own pair of amoled screens. The galaxy S7 is turning out to be quiet an interesting device.
