Samsung has announced its new Samsung VR headset at Mobile World Congress and this one comes with a Controller.
The design of the new Samsung VR looks similar to the one that was announced with the Galaxy Note 7 and the device is powered by Oculus.
“At Samsung, we are focused on setting and exceeding the standard for VR experiences, making them even more accessible and delivering the highest in quality,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Gear VR with Controller expands our VR ecosystem to help consumers get more engaged and immersed in VR content – whether it’s games or videos.”
For an expansive viewing experience, the Gear VR with Controller offers 42mm lenses with 101-degree FOV (Field of View) and advanced distortion correction technology to minimize motion sickness. The Samsung Gear VR with Controller will support both micro USB and USB Type-C port with a converter in-box. Additionally, the Gear VR will have a strap on the headset to hold the Controller when it is not in use.
The new Samsung Gear VR is compatible with the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ and we presume it will also be compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus when they are made official next month.
