In recent months Samsung has been working hard to make the experience with Gear VR even simpler, more dynamic and intuitive for users.In May, some images leaked that the South Korean would be working on an exclusive control for the VR headset of the company , since unlike Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Gear VR still does not have its own control in the set.
Microsoft also announced that the Xbox One controller will gain support for Gear VR , thereby increasing the range of alternatives for accessory owners.This week, however, another breakthrough has come to enhance the experience with Gear VR, which will soon gain an exclusive application for remote control through the intelligent Gear S2 and S3 watches.
Samsung has released a note announcing that it is working to integrate the remote control devices with the Gear VR, this will allow users to control applications and content directly through the watches. The Gear VR remote control application will make life even easier for users, since they will be able to advance a gallery, for example by simply rotating the front panel and pressing the physical buttons to choose.
The application will also work for playing virtual reality videos and even for games that have simplified commands.Support for control via smart clocks opens up opportunities for many applications, and it’s definitely a full-fledged platform for developers in the future.
Samsung has not yet mentioned further details as to when the application will be officially released, but it is likely to arrive with the Galaxy S8 early next year.According to rumors, the Galaxy S8 may rely on a powerful enough GPU to run content in VR 4K natively , which means a new path in the history of Samsung.
