Samsung's Gear VR tipped to hit the shelves on December 1, alleged retail price also leaks
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.
