Earlier today, we spoke of how LG plans to launch the G3 VR as a virtual reality headset for owners of its flagship smartphone. And new reports are now suggesting that the Korean manufacturer will supply these headsets to new users of the G3.
Unfortunately, the company hasn’t clarified as to whether the headset will be supplied to existing owners of the G3 and if there will be an option to purchase the headset separately. At the moment, the VR for G3 headset will probably be limited to the new owners, but things could change easily over the coming days.
“While still in its infancy, this is just the beginning of the virtual reality movement which until recently was expensive and inaccessible to everyday consumers,” said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications at the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “By leveraging Google Cardboard, not only are regular consumers able to participate in the VR experience, we’ll be able to introduce this technology to future developers who may one day show us how VR can be used to improve our lives.“
Existing LG G3 owners, would you be interested in getting the VR headset for your smartphone? Sound off below.
