We've heard rumor after rumor of Samsung's virtual reality headset in recent weeks, and according to the Verge the manufacturer is (as previous rumors suggested) set to unveil the device (codenamed Project Moonlight) at its upcoming Unpacked event in Berlin and New York, where Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4. What's more, the Verge has what appears to be a photo of the headset, next to a Samsung phone and Bluetooth controller.

The image seems to show a focus dial and ample lenses, as well as a front panel that would hold a phone, falling in line with previous rumors.

Readers may remember that Oculus, which itself used Galaxy Note 3 panels in its newer headsets, is said to be involved with Project Moonlight. The extent of the company's involvement with the headset's development remains to be seen, but it shouldn't be long until we've got all the details.

      Looks like the controller pictured is the Samsung Gamepad that came out earlier this year, I have one, its bluetooth only. There is a bluetooth symbol to the right of the power switch in the picture just like on mine. Hopefully a newer version does come out.....

    It looks no better than Google Cardboard. VR headsets have one purpose moving forward, to not look stupid wearing it.

      I do not care how I look if I'm in a virtual reality. I'm clearly not using this thing in public

    I love that Oculus is onboard with helping. Had fun with the Dev kit of the Rift. But unless Samsung breaks tradition and lets non Samsung device work with it, it won't be seeing my head any time soon. No desire to give up my Nexus 5.

      Is more a problem of LCD, that's why they choose Samsung for deliver the panels for rift because AMOLED
