Samsung Announces New Gear VR, Compatible With Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

While unveiling the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung also announced a new Gear VR headset that is compatible with the new devices. Since the original Gear VR is only compatible with the Galaxy Note 4, this move only makes sense.

Watch the Samsung Galaxy S6 MWC Live Stream Here!

Now that HTC is off stage at Mobile World Congress (MWC), it’s time for Samsung to dominate the rest of your life. OK, that’s a bit excessive, but with the soon-to-be-announced Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, expect Samsung to try and return to its pre-2014 form. All signs currently point to these two phones being Samsung’s best in years. They are completely re-done from the ground up, with more glass, more metal, and less gimmicks. At least, that’s what we are crossing fingers for.
