Samsung and Google will expand Nexus

Nexus 7 slowly conquers the market by tempting consumers with high functionality and low price. But many believe the 7-inch screen is too small for them, so plans are for a new, much larger tablet model.

According to unofficial reports released by CNET analyst Richard Shim, Google along with Korean Samsung is developing a new, larger version of Nexus, which would have a 10-inch screen and would offer a screen resolution of 2560×1600 pixels, beating the head of the new iPad. A pixel density of 299 ppi.

Shim claims that the reports are reliable because they come from component suppliers and those in those cases are the best informed source.

The specialist also claims that in December, the production of a new tablet for Android should start at $ 99. It is not known if this will be a Nexus 7 variant, or a brand new model.

If the information is confirmed, it would be a great curiosity. As we all know, Nexus 7 is a work of Asus, so you might think that Asus will also be producing a larger model. Meanwhile, Samsung’s involvement suggests that Google is seeking to diversify its interests and does not want to bind to one partner.

Advanced technology in the new Gear VR

There is a Samsung patent on the net, suggesting that the new generation of Gear VR goggles can be significantly upgraded. The documents indicate that on board it has the opportunity to find the technology of eye and face tracking.

Samsung Gear VR is one of the cheaper ways of experiencing virtual reality, although not available to everyone. Goggles only work with selected smartphone models of this manufacturer, which limits their usability.

However, the company managed to maintain a low product price of $ 99, although it is occupied with some imperfections in terms of its functionality. Goggles do not offer the same capabilities as the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive, so it is not easy to find the eye and face tracking functions.

Samsung also noticed the limitations of its product, as a patent appeared in the network, indicating that the new generation of Gear VR goggles could be greatly improved. Disclosed documents indicate that the device is likely to receive the missing technology. It will include a camera and LED lights that will be used to track the position of the head. On the other hand, the camera inside the goggles will monitor the face and eye position.
