Leaked render reportedly outs Samsung’s Oculus-powered Gear VR headset

Samsung and Oculus VR are believed to be working on a virtual reality headset together, with Oculus providing the software and Samsung producing the hardware. SamMobile has obtained a reported render of the headset, which is said to be called the Gear VR and could launch at the IFA 2014 trade show in September.
