If you own a Google Pixel or Pixel XL Nougat flagship and are itchin' to get your hands on the Daydream View VR headset, your wait will soon be over.
The new seating arrangement illustrated a much larger shift underway at Google, which crashed Apple's smartphone revolution eight years ago by giving away its Android software and letting handset makers do the rest. This means that it can launch at a significantly lower price point, with Google having developed a Daydream VR operating system that will allow future Android phones to operate the headset. Second, the View will be the first headset with access to the Daydream platform, Google's VR-centric platform/content store. It will be available via Google Store and at retailers across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, and Australia.
Google's Daydream View virtual reality headset and controller are coming to retail stores starting November 10th. As far as games are concerned, the Daydream View will come with titles such as Turret shooter, Gunjack 2 etc. For everyone else, if you have a Daydream-ready smartphone, you should be able to go into a Best Buy location shortly to give the headset a try.
Using Google's renowned Octane test, the iPhone 7 Plus was found to be three times FASTER than the Pixel XL, with a score of 26,582 compared to just 9,428 for the Pixel XL. Android Police reported that the upcoming Google Nexus 7 will feature the latest Andromeda OS, which will make it the best tablet of 2016, surpassing the Apple iPad Pro. We know this because Google has also confirmed that the delays were due to "a shipment glitch that has since been resolved". The Daydream View is priced at $79, which roughly translates to Rs 5000.
