‚ÄčLG and Valve are working on a VR headset

According to the press release, the VR HMD (Head Mounted Display) prototype will be shown in Valve's booth at the conference, and "the LG HMD prototype is created to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience".

LG is reportedly looking forward to give stiff competition to HTC as it has partnered up with Valve to develop a VR headset.

LG will be one of the first companies to offer a high-end alternative to Oculus and HTC/Valve's virtual reality headsets. It's first attempt was the 360 VR headset from a year ago which only worked for its flagship smartphone, the LG G5. The developer hoped that the other hardware manufacturers could make its own products revolving around the OpenVR platform and can execute the system without any change in the hardware. The wording of the announcement seemingly suggests that LG and Valve aren't developing a headset that's meant to be paired with just a smartphone like Samsung's Gear VR and Google's Daydream View are.

But now LG may be about to enter the space in direct cahoots with Valve itself.


LG has yet to share any specific details about the VR headset.

LG may be about to launch a VR headset in cooperation with Valve, allegedly at the GDC 2017 (Game Developers Conference) which is already underway.

In a brief email from Valve they have announced that LG is developing a new VR headset.
