LG Electronics Inc.'s next flagship smartphone, expected this fall, will also support the Daydream device, Google said. It is working with HTC, the company that made the Vive VR headset for PC, and Lenovo on hardware. The sketch design for this headset also shows what appears to be a Google Daydream View remote controller. Luckily, new devices are joining DayDream, including the highly successful Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus through a software update this summer, and the ZenFone AR.

This is the tagline accompanying the shadowy image of a brand new virtual reality headset that was unveiled today from the manufacturers of the popular Vive VR system: HTC. Instead, the headsets will feature positional tracking via Google's WorldSense system, allowing you to freely move around the virtual space in a game or app.

Google's getting real help with its virtual reality efforts. The company stated that the device was created to be comfortable and simple to use, implying it's working on a relatively lightweight headset that may be somewhat portable. Google did not share specs details about these standalone Daydream devices and did not mention a firm release date or price for them. As WorldSense will be able to track users without relying on additional sensors, HTC's upcoming Daydream headset should be simple to set up. Designed for low-powered phones, this streamlined version of Android will have a the Google Play Store that will feature optimized apps for these devices. The headsets are expected to begin hitting the market later this year. You just put the thing on and start using it.

Bavor said that Google is once again using a platform approach to build these standalone devices.
