Earlier this month at the Mobile World Congress, Samsung showed off the updated Gear VR Innovator Edition which also works with the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
If you’re eagerly waiting for the virtual reality headset, Gear VR, to hit retail starting March 27th at select Best Buy locations across the United States for $199.
The demos units of the device are already in over 100 Samsung “Experience Shops” at Best Buy locations for a month, but starting March 27th customers will be able to grab a unit for themselves. Samsung Gear VR is a virtual reality headset manufactured in partnership with the Facebook-owned Oculus to offer a fully-immersive virtual reality device.
At first, the Gear VR version will only work with the Galaxy Note 4, but the version compatible with the Galaxy S6 will go up for sale in the near future.
This is the first time customers will be able to grab the Gear VR in-stores, the company did sell it online for a brief period of time earlier this year.
Anyone planning to pick up the Gear VR from Best Buy when it’s officially available? Sound off in the comments below.
