I have been watching this story all week about a rumored Samsung Note 5 early release and did not put to much into it till now.
The question would remain if true, would the GearVR CV release early also ?
If so, it could help change the time-line I have plotted for VR names anyway. It does put some pressure on others announcements. Everyone wants to remain relevant.
Most of the pressure will be on Sony This December when both the Vive and Oculus will at least be in pre-order status.
One other thought to early GearVR…
Google has been working at building-up the speed of graphics for it’s next release of Android for VR this year (much like Oculus has already done for Samsung) and the play could be to get ahead of the iPhone and the Android VR release.
