Samsung going to release on November 10, 2016 the improved version of the Gear VR for the latest Samsung Galaxy devices. The price will be 10 000 Yen + tax.
Samsung did several changes and improvements on the new Gear VR, the view angle improved from 96° to 101° and comes with USB Type C port.
The new Gear VR will be compatible with Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge BUT it wouldn’t be compatible with the Note 7 not even when the phone will be available again on the market which is a sad thing.
The new Gear VR already released in 2016 August in North America and users pretty happy with it but since the current VR hype device in Japan is the PlayStation VR we are not sure how the new Gear VR will be accepted in the country.
