According to the press release, the VR HMD (Head Mounted Display) prototype will be shown in Valve's booth at the conference, and "the LG HMD prototype is created to deliver a high fidelity, next generation VR experience". However, it is quite possible the company will reveal the headset during Valve's GDC 2017 booth next week. The VR headset is expected to directly compete with the Oculus Rift and HTC's Vive.
Valve who had earlier partnered with HTC to make HTC Vive, let the world know of this piece of information by mistake, when it let slip that the company was building a new VR headset using its SteamVR Technology.

Valve confirmed that a prototype headset will be shown off this week at the Games Developer Conference (GDC) by the South Korean tech. firm.
Because LG's supposed headset is still in the prototype phase, details such as a release date, price, or region availability have been left unannounced.
