If you recall, back in February this year, there were reports that Google is working on a standalone VR headset. While the company never officially confirmed the existence of such a device, a new rumor is suggesting that the headset will be unveiled next week during the search giant’s annual I/O conference.

The rumor came in the form of a tweet from entrepreneur and former tech journalist Peter Rojas, who also said that the headset – allegedly dubbed Android VR – will be better than Samsung’s Gear VR, but not as good as Rift or Vive.

There was, however, no information on the pricing as well as launch time-frame of the device, although if the rumor is true, it shouldn’t be long before all these details are made official. The Google I/O conference for this year is scheduled for May 18 – 20.
