Rumours are circulating that Samsung is working on a virtual reality gaming headset that could be billed as a rival to the Oculus Rift.

Tech site Engadget cites unnamed sources close to the Korean manufacturer in its report, suggesting that the market for head-mounted VR technology could be about to take a big step towards the mainstream.

If Samsung did launch such a device, it is said that it would work in conjunction with the firm’s Galaxy smartphones and tablets, likely through a wired connection to avoid latency in gameplay.

Engadget’s sources also claim that the project is being treated with some urgency within the tech giant, with the aim of beating the Facebook-owned Oculus Rift and Sony’s similar Project Morpheus to market.
