Samsung's in-development virtual reality headset will look like the mockup above when it's officially revealed later this year, according to a report form SamMobile.

Samsung had reportedly partnered with Oculus Rift creator Oculus VR this year in a bid to develop its own VR headset technology. According to reports, Samsung's headset will work in conjunction with a USB-connected smartphone, instead of using its own dedicated hardware like the Oculus Rift and Sony's Project Morpheus. A side-mounted touchpad will aid user navigation.

Codenamed "Gear VR," Samsung's headset is expected to debut at the IFA 2014 trade show in September. Though Engadget notes that developer kits exist, Samsung has not yet officially announced Gear VR or its release plans.
