SAM­SUNG PHONES READY FOR VR

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > TECH TALK -

Sam­sung be­gan tak­ing pre-or­ders for the Ocu­lus­pow­ered Sam­sung Gear VR which works with the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Edge+, and Note 5.

The de­vice uses the phone's dis­play to pro­vide the ac­tual vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence, but it's 22% lighter than its pre­de­ces­sor, and in­cludes new foam cushioning. It also boasts an im­proved touch­pad for greater con­trol over movies, games, and 360-de­gree video. The head­set can play dozens of made-for-VR games and more than 25 new ti­tles are ex­pected by early next month. Users can also watch con­tent from Sam­sung's pre­mium Milk VR ser­vice, Net­flix, and Ocu­lus Video, as well as Hulu, which re­cently con­firmed plans to com­plete a VR app in time for the Gear's release.
