Samsung has made gigantic strides in the VR industry with millions of mobile Gear VR headsets deployed all over the world. And as of right now, you can purchase one of these VR headsets on Amazon for only $48 (That’s more than $50 off the original $100 MSRP). The listed headset is the second generation for Gear VR. The only catch to this amazing discounted sale is that you’d have to purchase the International version.
But don’t be too alarmed. The only dfference between the international version and the US version of the Samsung Gear VR is the language on the packaging. Not all of the instructions might be in English. You would have to visit their site or watch a YouTube tutorial on how to setup the mobile headset.
The Samsung Gear VR works with the Galaxy S7, S7 edge, Note 5, S6 edge+, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. Those are all Samsung smartphones so you’ll be requiring one to operate the VR device.
The Samsung Gear VR was co-branded by Oculus to deliver amazing VR experiences. In order to download VR experiences, you must head over to the Oculus store. There are amazing VR content currently available through the Oculus marketplace such as Escape Room VR or EVE: Gunjack. If you’ve ever been wanting to purchase a nice mobile VR headset, now would be the time. There isn’t a definite answer to when the sale will end.
