Samsung's new Gear VR virtual reality headset, which goes on sale through T-Mobile for $99.99 starting Nov. 27, allows users to view video games, movies and more in immersive new ways. The Samsung Gear VR is a consumer version of virtual reality headsets made by Oculus, which give users the ability to dive deeper into VR games and to have 360-degree video experiences. The Gear VR will work with Samsung's latest smartphone models—the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, S6 and S6 Edge—with their Super AMOLED displays giving users a richer virtual reality experience. It weighs 22 percent less than the previous Gear VR Innovator Edition and includes improved foam cushioning for better user comfort. The headset's touchpad has also been upgraded and improved, giving users greater control when operating the unit with games, movies and other content. T-Mobile will offer the Gear VR, which is available in Frost White, in participating T-Mobile stores and at Peruse this slide show for more details about this virtual reality viewer.
