The consumer version of the Gear VR is currently available straight off Samsungâ€™s website for merely Â£80 in the UK (instead of Â£99 as we would have expected based on its pricing in other regions). The product isnâ€™t currently available on other retailers but itâ€™s probably going to become more widely sold soon, both in the UK and other European markets. The Gear VR has already sold out in Koreaand T-Mobile is set to start selling the virtual reality headset later this month.
Currently, the Gear VR is compatible with the following handsets: Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. The headset also has a foam cushioning on the inside for added comfort as well as a touchpad on the right side, and thereâ€™s a lot of content for you to choose from like Landâ€™s End, a Gear VR exclusive game, and many others. Youâ€™re only able to get the Gear VR in Frost White at the moment but in the future Samsung could add more color options.
