Valve announce new LG VR headset compatible with SteamVR

Posted March 02, 2017

A prototype of the device will be showcased at Valve's GDC booth for the entire duration of the event that will run until Friday, March 3.

A press release about the headset from Valve reads, "The LG HMD prototype is created to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience". The company says that the new VR headset will use SteamVR Tracking technology, and possibly be built on the OpenVR platform.

Given that the game developer's goal is to get third-party developers to use its SteamVR Tracking technology, it should be expected that more VR devices will come out. Also, LG has experimented with VR in the past - like when it launched the 360 VR headset for LG G5 flagship. This approach is somewhat similar with HTC, which also partnered with Valve for the Vive VR headset. Pricing and details on the headset's specs are now unavailable but will be announced at a later time. We do not have any relationship with manufacturers, and all product choices are made by our editors, themselves.
