Google I/O next week will have a strong focus on Virtual Reality, we already knew that from the list of sessions on the Google I/O 2016 event schedule. Yesterday gadget blog entrepeneur Peter Rojas stirred things up announcing Google would announce a new standalone headset called Android VR at the event, now this morning developers are seeing an Android VR icon in their developer console.
The ‘leak’ yesterday referred to a more powerful VR headset than the Samsung Gear VR, but not as powerful as the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift – though as a mobile powered platform that it’s rumoured to be, that’s understandable.
We can’t wait for Google I/O, Ausdroid will be covering the event live from on the ground in Mountain View and from back here at home. Stay tuned, it’s going to get exciting.
