Shipments of VR headsets plummeted by over a third in the second quarter, research from IDC has found.
IDC said momentum had stalled from several years ago, when Alcatel, Google and Samsung were bundling headsets with smartphones. However, it noted shipments of screenless viewers, which are tethered to a handset, had dropped sharply from one million headsets in Q2 2017 to 409,000 this year. It was the largest contributor to the market decline.
