On March 16, the Samsung S9 became available for purchase. Although Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone offers a number of flashy new features, the Snapdragon 845 chipset powering the device is a big win for VR.

That means it could essentially enable freedom of movement in a mobile VR headset. But will it? And if it does, what content will viewers be able to watch?
That’s what I tackle in my latest article for Redshark News.
