The Samsung Gear VR has always been a pretty cool piece of technology but the price tag has always kept it out of the hands of the masses. Plus, each version that has launched was specific to either the S6 or the Note 4 which made the sell even a little harder. Well both issues have been put to rest with the latest Gear VR, the Consumer Edition, and it’s now available for pre-order.
The Source currently has the new Consumer Edition Samsung Gear VR up for pre-order and the price tag is much more palatable at $139.99. Unlike previous Gear VRs, this one works with a collection of Samsung devices including the S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Note 5. The Source has the expected ship date set for December 11 so we should expect to see them available in stores around the same time. This could be a great Christmas present for any techies you have in the family!
