When Samsung unpacked its Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ phablets, there wasn’t any mention for its Gear VR headset. It was quite unusual considering the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S6/S6 edge were announced with their respective Gear VR headsets.
The folks at CNET had managed to asked Samsung Mobile’s co-CEO Mr. JK Shin about it and he assured that the Gear VR for the latest phablets will be coming soon. He mentions that the launch will be a surprise but he stopped short of dropping further hints on what to expect.
As teased towards the end of last night’s event, Samsung will be launching its Gear S2 smart watch next month in Berlin during IFA 2015. With the Galaxy Note 5 out of the way, there’s room for more announcements and it is possible that the new Gear VR could be revealed at the same event.
The Gear VR is powered by Oculus technology and it uses the smart phone’s screen as the display. Initially announced for the Galaxy Note 4, the latest Gear VR designed for the S6/S6 event has finally arrived in Malaysia with the price tag of RM799.
