Project Dream is reportedly the codename of the Daydream VR-certified 4K Galaxy S8
It’s no longer a big secret the rapidly approaching Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have many great things going for it, including iris recognition, an enhanced S Pen, snazzy dual-edged screen, all the RAM you could ever need, and water resistance.
While probably not compatible with the existing first consumer edition of the Gear VR headset due to USB Type-C adoption, the phablet should come to market chaperoned by its own affordable new pair of virtual reality goggles.
But what about support for Google’s industry-paramount Daydream platform? Seeing as how ZTE is already on board, and Huawei will likely jump on the bandwagon before long, it was safe to expect Samsung to join the party ASAP.
That’s still not out of the question, although we’ve heard no such rumors, and next spring’s Galaxy S8 might be worth waiting for if you’re into immersive content anyway. Codenamed Project Dream, which is presumably no coincidence, the 5.5-incher today gets further corroboration from inside sources of carrying a super-high-res 4K display optimized specifically for VR consumption.
4K or UHD means 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, for the record, resulting in 806 ppi density, and the Samsung Galaxy S8 could pack a next-gen, premium VR-ready Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor as well.
