What you need to know

  • Chinese VR news company Vrtuoluo published (since deleted) leaked images of a prototype Samsung XR headset.
  • Reportedly, this headset had several similarities to the Apple Vision Pro, but ran from an Exynos 2200 chipset.
  • Samsung and Google are collaborating on an XR device, developing the hardware (Samsung) and the software (Google).
  • A report from July claimed that Samsung abandoned this specific prototype after the unveiling of the Apple Vision Pro and was planning a new version to “better compete” with Apple.

Back in July, we learned that Samsung executives took a look at the Apple Vision Pro and decided to completely redesign their mixed-reality headset, focusing on performance, design and the display panel. Now, based on a leaked prototype of Samsung’s XR headset, we know why.

Chinese VR news site Vrtuoluo leaked images and specifications of the unnamed Samsung XR headset late last week. It later deleted the article, possibly due to a takedown request from Samsung; but we saw the images and information thanks to UploadVR and analyst Brad Lynch who covered the leak.
