The consumer version of the Gear VR is currently available straight off Samsung’s website for merely £80 in the UK (instead of £99 as we would have expected based on its pricing in other regions). The product isn’t currently available on other retailers but it’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 Korea and 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 there’s a lot of content for you to choose from like Land’s End, a Gear VR exclusive game, and many others. You’re only able to get the Gear VR in Frost White at the moment but in the future Samsung could add more color options.
