Excited for the next generation of VR headsets? 2023 will be a big year for the VR industry. Lets you preview the best new VR/MR devices worth checking out.

When it comes to VR headsets, Meta goes even further with more advanced specs and advanced technology making them increasingly wallet-friendly.

Meanwhile, Apple is making waves with its long-awaited mixed reality headset, the Vision Pro. Promising unparalleled immersion with revolutionary optics, it’s a game-changing set, albeit at a hefty price.

But, Apple may not go unchallenged as Google and Samsung are rumored to be joining forces to take over Apple.

On the gaming front, Sony isn’t far behind, bringing VR gaming to consoles with its PS VR2, designed expressly for the PS5. It’s a shame it’s a PlayStation exclusive, given its great performance capabilities.


Virtual reality headsets of the future

The Bigscreen Beyond VR headset is the result of a virtual reality software developer that focuses on hardware. The headset was unveiled earlier this year and confirmed the price, design, specifications and vital features. It is expected to be launched in the third quarter of this year.

This VR headset comes with OLED displays with a resolution of 2560 x 2560 pixels per eye with a 90Hz refresh rate. It weighs only 127 grams and is very compact and will cost $999.

Once you pre-order the headset, the company tries to 3D scan your face. This is used to make the face cushion according to the shape of the user. The headset will be sent directly to the user after entering the shipping stage.

This headset has pancake lenses that help keep it compact and light. It has a 90 degree field of view and fully supports VR games on Steam. You can also enjoy movies, play games, and participate in VR with your friends using the Bigscreens app.

The makers of Steam Deck are working on a successor to Valve Index. The company has confirmed that it is developing a second-generation VR headset, but has yet to reveal specific details.

The company is confident about virtual reality because it has the experience to build new hardware and a library of games to harness the power of future headsets.

Valves game library and aggressive pricing is also the reason for the success of Valve’s handheld game console. The Valve Index headset, on the other hand, was released in 2019 and despite the $1,000 price tag for the complete kit, it performs well.

Valve’s upcoming VR headset could be an exciting gadget that could take on the bigscreen headsets that seem to take advantage of Valves game library.

Apples Vision Pro has been discussed since 2016. However, the company only showed off its first mixed reality headset at WWDC.

Not only has this been one of Apple’s most secretive recent projects, it’s also one of the most important products introduced under Tim Cook.

The Vision Pro is priced at $3,499 and will be available later this year. While we don’t yet have exact specifications for the Vision Pro, the Vision Pro displays 23 million pixels on each lens, which puts the pixel density quality higher than a 4K TV on both three-element lenses.

It also features Ambient Spatial Audio, which when paired with audio ray tracing, provides users with some of the highest quality sound they’ve ever experienced in a VR headset.

Project Mohan by Samsung and Google

Various reports suggest that Samsung and Google, who currently collaborate on Android and Wear OS, are teaming up to take on Apple. The result of the joint effort could be a powerful XR headset called Project Moohan.

Reports suggest that the augmented reality (XR) headset may feature Samsung hardware (and branding), while Google is preparing Android XR software to power the headset. Both companies want to make an impressive headset that can compete with Apple’s Vision Pro.

However, the teams at the two tech giants are reportedly frustrated by delays and fear of making a poor product.

On the hardware side, Google has a long list of failed AR-related products, including Google Glass, Cardboard, Daydream, Tango, and Iris, apart from software like ARCore, Tilt Brush, and several Google Maps AR features. That’s why Samsung seems eager to take control of the project and want to make sure it sees the light of day.

We were still not sure about the launch date of Project Moohans. However, we certainly had our fingers crossed.
