Samsung has reportedly delayed its new Extended Reality (XR) headset for six months. According to the Korean publication, Samsung initially planned to begin mass production of its XR headset early next year. Now Samsung has decided to revise all specs and designs of the XR headset due to the specs of the Apple Vision Pro.
While Samsung has decided to rethink the specs and design of its new XR headset, things aren’t going smoothly for Apple either, as the Vision Pro faces production issues, with Apple failing to meet its goal of selling 1 million Vision Pro units in the first month to reduce availability.

Apple is also reportedly planning a slow rollout of the Vision Pro, and it will be available for purchase by appointment only.
This year, Samsung also revealed a partnership with Qualcomm and Google, including an “unannounced version of Android” for “portable displays.” Google is also reportedly working on a model for XR devices, putting OEM hardware first rather than building it themselves.
There are also no words for when the company will roll out the next XR headset. We will most likely get it in the second half of 2024. Moreover, Samsung has not yet released any information about this.
