Samsung explains Gear VR features using an infographic

In a partnership with Oculus VR, Samsung has announced their first virtual reality headset, the Gear VR. As this is a completely new product category for Samsung, they thought that it would a great idea to educate users about the features and capabilities of the Gear VR through an infographic. Unlike other virtual reality headsets, the Gear VR uses the Galaxy Note 4’s 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen to power the entire experience. The Gear VR can be used to enjoy extremely immersive movie watching or gaming experience. Priced at €200, the Gear VR will be available later this year from Samsung’s retail stores and through carriers. It will also be available bundled with Samsung’s Gamepad controller for €250.

I leave my question under this newer post too:

I’m very curious. Putting aside content developed expressly for the GearVR (games etc), does the “Movie” part enable users to actually watch video files (avi, mkv etc) stored on phone? Not necessarily 3D movies, just a more immersive mobile watching experience.


There is already a lot of VR software for the dive. One of them is VR-player which takes 2D or 3D movies and projects them on a virtual screen. You can find the movies here: http://vrplayer.tv/ .
The downside of vr-player is that it doesn’t even perform on a nexus 10. The exynos note 4 is of course a lot faster. But vr-player doesn’t make use of the hardware codecs on the system :-(.
