The new consumer version of the Samsung Gear VR recently went on sale in South Korea and the device sold out on the first day.
Samsung only made 2,000 units of their Gear VR available in South Korea on launch day, so it is hardly a surprise that the device sold out quickly.
The device is also launching in the US and Europe later this month and it is already available to pre-order in some countries.
It is compatible with Samsung’s latest smartphones, this include the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 Edge and the S6 Plus as well as the Galaxy Note 5.
The Samsung Gear VR retails for 129,800 won in South Korea, this is about $110 at the current exchange rate, the previous developer version of the device was available for twice the price of the new consumer version.
We suspect that this could end up being a popular device for Samsung, it will be made available in more countries before the end of the month.
