However it turns out that isn’t the case because Google has since confirmed at one of their sessions at I/O and on their blog that a Google-made headset is on its way. According to Google, “With Daydream, we’ve also created a reference design for a comfortable headset and an intuitive controller. And, yes we’re building one too.”
We’re not sure what the final product will look like, but there’s a good chance it will end up looking like the reference design that they showed off during I/O, which we guess isn’t necessarily a bad thing. For those who missed Google’s announcement during I/O, Daydream is Google’s VR platform.
There will be Daydream-ready phones meaning that these devices have been certified as being compatible for Daydream in terms of hardware, like processing power, screen resolution, size, clarity, and etc. Huawei themselves have recently announced that they will be offering Daydream support in future handsets. In any case we suppose this could be thought of as the “Nexus” for VR headsets and we’re definitely looking forward to its release.
