Here's what Samsung's VR headset looks like in real life


Sure, you've seen a 3D render of Samsung's widely leaked virtual reality headset, but what's it like in the real world? Well, you may be looking at it right now -- The Verge has posted what it says is a photo of the Oculus-backed eyewear. It's not quite as sleek as the earlier imagery, but the basic formula lines up with what we've heard; a faceplate at the front lets you plug your phone in and use it as a screen for VR games and other apps. The biggest change from the early image is the presence of a focus dial that helps you see clearly. There's no certainty that this is exactly what Samsung will unveil at next month's IFA show, assuming it's authentic in the first place, but it wouldn't surprise us in the least to see this wearable display on stage.
