Samsung Gear VR R324 (VR + Controller) is the 2017 released VR flagship device that succeeds the original Gear VR from Korean tech giant Samsung. It is fully compatible with the 2017 flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8 and offers a next-generation immersive gaming experience that you have never seen before. It offers the best 360-degree spherical experience in amazing clarity. Furthermore, it now comes with its own dedicated controller to make your viewing even more convenient and enjoyable.
Gear VR R324 is an innovative Virtual Reality headset which can be easily head-mounted just like its predecessor. The device has a goggle-like front with soft foam padding along the edges to snugly fit your head comfortably. It works seamlessly with Galaxy smartphones including the latest Galaxy S8. To enjoy multimedia content or play games, all you need to do is connect a compatible mobile device to the Gear VR and launch the downloaded apps on the mobile device. The device reacts to the movement of your head which makes you feel like you are part of the sequence being played.
A dedicated controller for the new Gear VR now replaces the touch-sensitive control panel provided in the predecessor model. This new handheld unit boasts a touch-pad and button input, a Rocker type key and a Trigger. It allows a number of interactive functions including point, drag and drop, tilt and shoot. Similarly, the trigger allows launching VR sequences which takes virtual reality gaming experience to whole new level. So far as physical construction is concerned, the new Gear VR is made of soft and lightweight materials so that you can wear it comfortably even for longer duration while enjoying your favorite movies, games, TV shoes and music videos.
Samsung Gear VR R324 sports a new 42mm built-in lens which provides a wide 101-degree field of view. The lens optics include an advanced distortion correction system which is especially designed to eliminate motion sickness. Furthermore, the headset comes with a microUSB as well as the latest Type C USB connector so you can easily switch in your latest Galaxy S8 or your older VR Gear compatible Galaxy series smartphones as well.
