As the ecosystem expands, a growing number of vendors are releasing their own VR accessories as add-ons to smartphones, ABI notes.
"Smartphones are the perfect platform for the VR market, because they already have the power and technological functionality necessary to create a fun, in-depth simulated environment," said Eric Abbruzzese, an analyst at ABI Research, in a statement. "As their capabilities continue to evolve, we anticipate high-end VR, which is currently exclusive to PC and game consoles, to expand to mobile-powered uses by 2020."
