Samsung Gear VR

The latest addition to Samsung’s wearable range is now available in the UK (RRP £80). Embracing the virtual reality evolution, the latest edition of the Gear VR is compatible with the Galaxy S6 edge+, S6 and S6 edge. The UK launch coincides with announcement of Samsung’s new web browser optimised for virtual reality. The Samsung Internet app will allow users to intuitively browse the web and enjoy content in a more immersive atmosphere without having to download content onto their smartphones. It will be available to UK users later this year.

The Gear VR’s touchpad (on the side of the headset) provides greater control while offering the robust selection of film, gaming, 360-degree video and experiential content available for Gear VR, while the new Samsung Gear VR is 19 per cent lighter than the previous Gear VR and includes new foam cushioning to make the device more comfortable to wear.
