Google Says Existing Smartphones Likely Won't Work With Its Daydream VR Platform

Has Google's recent Daydream VR platform caught your fancy? Are you waiting to try it on the smartphone you own? Well, sadly, you are out of luck as Google has assumed that existing smartphones will "most likely" not work with the Android-powered VR platform.

"I can disclose you that there will most likely not be any retroactively Daydream-ready phones," assumed the Mountain View, Califronia-based company's VR division head Clay Bavor.

"We want to hrecent a very high quality bar, and for that to happen all of the components need to be just right. So, to VR fans, I would say, hrecent off for a few months to acquire your next phone… and acquire a Daydream-ready phone."

It's worth mentioning that Google hasn't yet made public the exact minimum specifications that are needed for a phone to be certified as Daydream-ready.

Of all the already-available flagships, currently only the Nexus 6P is Daydream-supported, but that's only for development - there's no official word on whether or not the device would be supported once the VR platform is officially launched.

ZTE's newly-announced Axon 7 is Daydream-ready, but it's yet to go on sale.
