I think you can assume the VR engine will run on any Daydream-compliant phones and devices. For now, Google says:
The Nexus 6P is the only phone supported as a headset phone for a Daydream development kit at this time.
See: https://developers.google.com/vr/concepts/dev-kit-setup

However, for non-VR applications, Unity already runs on a ton of phones and other devices.

P.S. I would not buy a 6P, right now. IMO, it was always overpriced, but it's now about 1 month away from getting replaced (rumor is they'll drop Nexus, in favor of the "Pixel" branding).

I'm still puzzled why Samsung didn't say the Note 7 is Daydream VR compatible.
Only one that has official support is the ZTE Axon 7...the Nexus 6p is only a dev device and will overheat when used too long....

Daydream is barely in beta, which is why the only device Google will support is their latest Nexus device. ZTE claiming their phone as fully Daydream compliant before Daydream has even been released is nothing but gambled marketing. It probably will support Daydream, but, Google could jsut as well decide to change the hardware requirements before it's finalised.
