Samsung Gear VR price set at $199

A Samsung representative has indicated that the Gear VR will be sold with a price tag of just $199.

That’s pretty affordable when compared to the Oculus Rift which is pegged at about $399.



However, bear in mind that the Samsung Gear VR will be using the Galaxy Note 4 as the HUD so that entails another $799 (~Php35,000) to build the whole set.

We’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to arrive in the Philippines sometime late October but we’re not sure if the Gear VR will tag along with it.

    Actually, if you think about it… it’s not just $199… it ONLY WORKS WITH THE NOTE 4 so…. approximately $800 + $199 … for a grand total of $999…..Bam!!!!
