Samsung Gear VR to be released by end of the year
The South Korean tech company Samsung has announced that the new mobile virtual reality headset Gear VR will be released by the end of the year.
The Gear VR will complement the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone and will use its computational power to create images on a 5.7-inch display that works at QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). This means that without a Galaxy Note 4 device you will not be able to use the Gear VR as it should. Given that the Gear VR will sell for USD 200 (in the USA) and the Galaxy Note 4 sells for USD 800, this means that you will have to spend USD 1000 on the platform.
Samsung also says that the Gear VR will come to us in white. The device will be able to display various content including games, movies, books and more.
