Samsung at the launch stressed that Gear VR headgear works seamlessly with Galaxy smartphones. Currently, the Gear VR supports the latest high-end Galaxy smartphones including the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. Samsung also added the Galaxy Note 5 Dual SIM to the compatible devices list.
The company also said that the new Samsung Gear VR is 19 percent lighter compared to the previous model. It also features a large touchpad for control. It weighs 318 grams without Galaxy smartphone and measures 201.9×116.4×92.6mm. The Gear VR comes with a field of view of 96 degrees. It packs back, volume, and focus adjustment wheel button for controls.
The Gear VR packs sensors such as gyro, accelerometer, and proximity. The device can be charged via Micro-USB. The Gear VR comes with soft, flexible cushioning material, and also features adjustable straps for ease of use.
The Gear VR headgear will support 360-degree videos. Gear VR Consumers Edition that launched last year came with access to Oculus Video and Oculus Arcade for videos and games. The company has not detailed whether the Gear VR will come with access to Oculus videos and games.
But you will not find a Samsung accessory that produces more fun than the Gear VR. It corrects what was missing in the developer editions – there are now plenty of quality apps and games, it’s now lighter – and it’s selling for a kind of impulse buy price. This is the VR headset to buy.
