Google recently unveiled its much awaited Daydream VR platform and today it announced that the VR platform won’t be compatible with current smartphones.
The Mountain View, Califronia-based company’s VR division head Clay Bavor in his speech said
“I can tell you that there will most likely not be any retroactively Daydream-ready phones,”
“We want to hold a very high quality bar, and for that to happen all of the components need to be just right. So, to VR fans, I would say, hold off for a few months to get your next phone… and get a Daydream-ready phone.”
It is to be noted that Google hasn’t yet made open to public the accurate details that are required for a smartphones to be ensured as Daydream-ready phone.
Presently, just the Nexus 6P is Daydream supported device from the rest of the flagships smartphones which are readily available in the market however, but that is just too for development. There’s no official word on regardless of whether the Nexus 6P would be upheld once the Daydream VR platform is formally launched.
