Samsung South Africa has launched the Gear VR Innovator Edition for the Galaxy S6.
The virtual reality (VR) headset is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and is available at selected Samsung Experience stores, retailers, and local operators.
Powered by Oculus, the makers of the Rift headset, the Gear VR Innovator Edition promises an improved experience over its forerunners, along with new VR content and 360-degree experiences.
Among the new features of the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition are:
- Better experience: With reduced pixilation and a wide field-of-view, Samsung promises a better virtual reality experience with longer-lasting usage time.
- Improved comfort: A 15% reduction in size means the new Gear VR is more comfortable to wear. Straps have been redesigned for better ergonomics, and mechanical ventilation has been added.
- Higher performance: The new Gear VR Innovator Edition has greater computing power and improved graphics capabilities.
- USB compatibility: The Gear VR can now be powered using a USB port.
