Back at the launch of Google Daydream in late 2016 we heard that a variety of partners, including LG and Huawei, will be making headsets for the platform, and it now seems the latter’s headset is finally nearing a release.
Part of the new Daydream VR headset from Huawei has just passed through the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and is referred to as a “virtual reality handle”. It seems to actually be more of a controller that will work in a similar way to the one included on the Daydream View.
The features include a way to answer phone calls as well as a trigger and directional pad for gaming or when you start up other media. We didn’t get a look at the headset itself, but it’s clear this controller will have to be used alongside a Daydream VR viewfinder.
The fact it has headed through the FCC suggests Huawei is finally nearing a release date for its headset too.
We’ve already seen Huawei release a VR headset in its home country of China, called the Huawei VR, but this will be the first time we’ll see the company make a Daydream.
