The manufacturer initially did not reveal any exact information about the release date or the price of its virtual reality accessory, but a recently-leaked internal document purportedly hints that Samsung might be gearing towards a launch on December 1, at least in its home turf at South Korea. Reportedly, the Gear VR might fetch a KRW 200,000 ($187) price tag. Then again, you'd also need to spare some cash for the Galaxy Note 4 if you want to use of Samsung's VR accessory.
We had the opportunity to put the Gear VR on our tech-savvy heads and test it out at this year's IFA event - our general impressions are that despite being a little bit bigger, heavier, and not as comfortable as we'd like it to be (not to mention that it will only work with a Galaxy Note 4 at the front for now). Still, VR headsets are among the hottest topics of the gaming industry at the moment, so the Gear VR has a certain potential ahead of it.
