Google May Release Gear VR Competitor This Year

This is great news for Nexus fans who want a VR headset that doesn’t look like it was made by a homeless person.

In addition to a new plastic casing, it's said that the headset will support a far wider range of smartphones than the Gear VR. Sources also tell the paper that it will feature "better sensors" and "lenses," suggesting that it won't be wholly reliant on the equipment built into your smartphone. The report mentions that "most of its processing power" would come from the smartphone. Google Cardboard, which has been around for over a year and a half, provides two plastic lenses and just holds your smartphone in the right position to function as a VR device.
