Samsung sends out approval emails to those Galaxy S7 buyers due free Gear VR or Gear S2
The email that we copied below was one to a Verizon customer who had requested the Gear S2 smartwatch. The message goes on to say that "due to the high level of interest in the Verizon Offer promotion, delivery times for Gear S2 are now extending into May and potentially Summer 2016." We're not sure if the delay is limited to those Verizon customers who picked the Gear S2 to receive instead of the Gear VR headset, or if all consumers who took part in the promotion at Verizon or other carriers will have to wait for the Summer to receive their VR headset.
Samsung will send another email to those involved in the promotion once their Gear VR or Gear S2 actually ships. Six games come with the Gear VR and the value of the package is $149.99. The Gear S2 freebie is valued at $300.
