The Samsung Gear VR leaks in photo
Samsung's VR headset, expected to be introduced at IFA in Berlin next month, is now rumored to carry the name of the Samsung Gear VR (for Virtual Reality, of course). A picture showing the device, reveals what appears to be a dial that helps the user focus. A USB port will apparently allow for the headset to sync with a Samsung smartphone, and that same phone docks with the Gear VR for a virtual reality experience. A lid keeps the phone in place.

The Gear VR is a product that we've written about before, last month to be exact. It features an OLED display and a touchpad, and the phone's accelerometer and gyroscope helps orient it. The rear camera from the smartphone provides video images, and the phone itself drives the content to the Gear VR. The model in the picture, is the Samsung Galaxy S5.

As we noted above, the Samsung Gear VR (code named Project Moonlight) will be unveiled at IFA in Berlin. The Gear VR SDK should be released shortly afterward. There is no expected timeframe for the release of the device. You can check out the leaked image of the product, below. With the use of the Samsung Gear name for its smartwatches and now this, it looks the moniker will stick as a way to denote the manufacturer's wearable products.
