Apart from Google Cardboard, Google made another VR Headsets – Google Daydream VR, a platform for high quality, mobile virtual reality made to take you on incredible adventures. With Daydream-ready phone, you can explore on incredible adventures in virtual reality through Google Daydream VR. Now, let’s see how to watch all kinds of 3D videos including 3D MKV/MTS/ISO/FLV on Google Daydream VR.
First of all, you should know which phone is Daydream-ready. So far, only a few Daydream-ready phones have been announced but a few more recent devices will possibly be included to the list. But until the official hardware spec is published, we can’t say for sure. Here’s the confirmed list so far:
- Google Pixel XL
- Google Pixel
- ZTE Axon 7
- Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe
- Huawei Mate 9 and Mate S2
- LG V20
Rumor says that Android phones with below Daydream-ready specs mostly can be used to play 3D video for Google Daydream VR.
1. The Snapdragon 820 is the minimum chipset required for the CPU and GPU performance expected by Google and 4 GB of RAM looks to be the minimum memory requirement.
2. On the display front, at least a Full HD OLED display with low persistence is also necessary.
3. As Qualcomm notes in its VR Software Development Kit notes for the Snapdragon 820, VR also requires “predictive head position processing” which the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP includes.
4. All devices will need to be running Android 7.0 Nougat to take advantage of its Sustained Performance Mode for VR, too.
