Samsung Working with Microsoft for VR/AR?

9 May, 2018 Samsung

In the world of Virtual Reality, Microsoft and Samsung are competitors, but it looks like these two tech giants are working together on a project that involves an AR/VR headset. There's a big difference between augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) as the former encompasses and augments the real world with virtual elements, while the latter cuts the user off completely from the real world to provide an immersive experience. It looks like the next project from the duo is going to blur the line between the two as the wireless headset they are working on will allegedly have both and AR and VR capabilities. Unlike the Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset which was released in 2017, this one will probably not need a separate computer to power it.

The news was confirmed by The Korea Times after a Samsung representative spoke to them and even informed the paper that the product will have Samsung's own AMOLED displays, sensors and processors.
