Samsung Gear VR wireless controller shows up in new leak
As controllers go, this one doesn't immediately look like it was designed for VR. Instead of focusing mainly on hand tracking, which might offer more immersive interactions, this feels very much like a standard 2D gaming controller.
That said, there do appear to be a few concessions that make it a good fit for pairing with the Gear VR headset, most notable of which is a design that would allow the controller to pop right into the viewer for storage – where you'd normally attach your phone while in use.
While this may not be the most innovative VR-focused controller we've ever seen, we have to admit that it probably has its uses, especially for gamers more interested in using the Gear VR as a portable 3D screen for more traditional games.
The source behind these renders doesn't offer any info on a possible launch window nor what Samsung could be thinking in terms of pricing.
