Is this Samsung’s Gear VR headset?

gear vrLook what we have here. SamMobile is confirming the existence of the Gear VR, a virtual reality device that Samsung will debut alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 in September. So this is our first look at the device. It is not a standalone device. By that, I mean that the Gear VR will have a dock that users can plug their Galaxy devices into via a USB 3.0 cable. It will use the inserted smartphone’s accelerometer, gyroscope and processing power to give the headset the ability to track the user’s head, simulating virtual reality without using built-in sensors of its own.

This will certainly insure that Samsung’s model will require a less assembly.

It will hopefully be affordable.
