Google s Daydream platform is the company s first real, non-cardboard commitment to virtual reality – but there s a big catch.

It turns out that Google s Daydream VR ecosystem is unlikely to be supported by any existing Android smartphone.

Right now, Google is recommending the Nexus 6P – its current flagship handset – for use with the Daydream developer kit, but Bavor s recent comments seem to suggest even that won t make the cut for the final Daydream version.

Daydream is a virtual reality platform developed by Google, first announced at this month s Google I/O conference.

It s a much more fleshed out successor to Google Cardboard, and looks to rival other similar ecosystems like Facebook s Oculus VR.
