Meanwhile, several attendees at Facebook's big F8 developer conference happening this week have posted photos of a sign suggesting that everyone there will get free Oculus Go headsets tomorrow, May 2.
A 32GB version will cost $199 and a 64GB retails for $249.
Two versions of the Galaxy 9 passed certification in China
The Note 9 will sport the largest Li-Ion battery the company has ever used in a smartphone and a dual aperture camera in the back. If you may remember, we once mentioned the Galaxy A6 and A6 + will actually be known as the Galaxy J8 and J8+ in some markets.
Evidence is piling up that Facebook-owned Oculus is gearing up to launch its low-priced, standalone virtual reality headset Oculus Go, possibly as soon as later today. Battery life is claimed to last between 1.5 and 2 hours of gaming, 2 and 2.5 hours for video viewing. We also can't say for sure that these are Oculus Go boxes because they are turned backwards to hide the box art.
The company has long maintained that bringing your hands into VR is more important than getting your head there.
Discovered by RoadtoVR, Reddit user theDarthonly shared a photo of sixteen Oculus Go units on display at a Fayetteville, Arkansas Best Buy, some marked 32GB and others 64GB, matching previously-known storage capacity options for the headset. The stand-alone VR headset doesn't require a computer, or a smartphone, or any additional hardware. Who's picking one up, and which model are you going with? This is a testament to Facebook's willingness to make tight or nonexistent profit margins in order to ensure it remains the leader of the VR market - it also speaks to the fact that Oculus understands mobile VR software better than any competitor, by a country mile.
