Samsung’s Gear VR headset price and release date allegedly leaked

Samsung isn’t exactly blowing away the competition in the smartphone market at the moment, but the company is working on plenty of interesting products outside of the mobile world that could expand its reach even further. One of those products in the Gear VR virtual reality headset, a device which we were impressed by when we went hands-on with it early last month. More →

Samsung reportedly revealed the price of its Gear VR headset

The Gear VR is a fascinating proposition. Partnering with Oculus, Samsung has built its very own virtual reality headset, but there’s a catch — you have to own a Galaxy Note 4 to use it. We were able to get some hands-on time with it last week before IFA 2014 kicked off and we were impressed with just how close the experience was to that of the actual dedicated VR headset that is the Oculus Rift, but we still had questions. Chief among them: how much will the Gear VR cost? More →

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Virtual reality like you’ve never seen it before

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Virtual reality like you’ve never seen it before

It didn’t exactly come as a surprise when Samsung unveiled its first ever virtual reality headset during a press conference on Wednesday, but I’m not sure anyone expected the Gear VR to come out the way it did. Unlike the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality headsets we’ve seen in the recent past, the Gear VR is not a standalone device. Instead, Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 docks in the headset and the phone’s 5.7-inch quad HD display serves as the screen for all the action.

It’s an interesting implementation, to say the least, but I found that the virtual reality experience the Gear VR provides is shockingly entertaining. More →

SamMobile reports that it can now confirm the existence of the Gear VR, a virtual reality device that Samsung will debut alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 in September. More →

New details emerge on Samsung’s Oculus-like virtual reality headset

New details emerge on Samsung’s Oculus-like virtual reality headset

If there is one characteristic that has defined Samsung over the past few years, it’s the company’s willingness to try absolutely anything. If a rival enters a new market — or if there is even a rumor that a rival will enter a new market — Samsung looks to get there as fast as it possibly can. Touchscreen smartphones, tablets, TV voice controls, media streaming boxes and smartwatches are all examples of this, and now it appears as though Samsung will look to compete with Facebook-owned Oculus VR in the near future.
