(TheStreet)  In his keynote at the Virtual Reality Summit in San Diego, Samsung VP Dr. Sung-Hoon Hong said that his company has two new virtual reality headsets in the works. The first, the Samsung Gear VR 2, Hong said “will be presented in a short time,” while another headset will build upon existing augmented reality technology from Microsoft’s (MSFT) HoloLens and start-up VR company Magic Leap.
Samsung could be more heavily focusing on augmented reality instead of VR going forward, Hong said. “AR has much better business development for Samsung,” he said at the summit. “That’s what we’re aiming for.”
