For a fledgling, immature, and extremely experimental market, the virtual reality universe is about to get a little too crowded for its own good, with options ranging from your rudimentary Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR to the much fancier Oculus Rift and HTC Vive soon.

We shouldn’t forget about Microsoft HoloLens either, which is technically an AR (augmented reality) product, while Apple and Google are themselves rumored to be working hard on high-profile virtual reality headsets capable of pairing up with iPhones and Nexus handhelds.

That’s right, a Nexus VR could go official as early as May, at the I/O developer conference, and start selling in September, according to anonymous insiders quoted by The Financial Times. The economic publication points at a dedicated Android VR platform for the running of this mysterious device, which will likely work with most modern-day Android phones, and draw “most of its processing power” from the actual handset.

Most, not all, mind you, with “better sensors, lenses and a more solid plastic casing” supplied compared to Cardboard and Gear VR, meaning both standalone functionality and pricing should increase.

Other details unfortunately remain up in the air, but if the search giant indeed plans to unveil its great VR push in three months, you can count on specifics beginning to trickle in before long.
