Smartphones to lead the VR revolution

Thursday, 10 November 2016

A new Juniper Research report forecasts that by 2021 60 million consumers will be buying smartphone-compatible VR headsets ever year. 

That’s a huge jump compared with the expected 16.8 million devices expected to have shipped by the end of this year – a 240% increase over the next five years. 

And this huge upswing in popularity is down to accessibility and affordability. 

Unlike the highly hyped, highly priced devices from the likes of Facebook-owned Oculus VR, which require cutting-edge PCs to bring the technology to life, consumers only need an Android headset and a pair of scissors to try a Google Cardboard headset.

And at slightly higher US$100-US$200 (RM423-RM846) price points there is a growing selection of well made, impressive devices from the likes of Samsung in particular. 

However, the huge disparity in performance and VR quality (as well as price) offered by smartphone compatible units could potentially turn VR into a fad.
