While Google’s upcoming October 4th event is obviously going to be focused around its new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets (whose renders just got leaked), the event is also said to introduce some updates to other Google products, one of which is the Google Daydream View virtual reality (VR) headset.
In a post published on Droid-Life, it seems that they managed to get their hands on new renders that are supposedly that of the new Daydream View headset. However it seems that in terms of design, the new View headsets don’t appear to be too different from its predecessor, save for maybe a change in the textiles used to cover the headset, and some new color options.
Details are a bit scarce at the moment, but Droid-Life claims that the new View headset will cost more than its predecessor at $99, which is $20 more expensive than before. It will also be retaining the remote, so presumably the hike in price has to do with an upgrade in its internals, right? Otherwise we’re not sure how Google could justify the price increase.
In any case we guess we will find out in the next couple of weeks as to what the new View headsets will be bringing to the table, save for new color options, so check back with us then for the details.
