The New, Consumer Edition Samsung Gear VR Is Up For Pre-order

After having outed a couple of "Innovator Edition" Gear VR headsets in the past year or so, Samsung has officially announced its mass-market offering in this space back in September.

The 'consumer version' Gear VR was then assumed to start shipping in November. And here we are, with pre-orders having already commenced over at Best Buy.

As previously revealed, the newest Gear VR can be yours for just $99.99, which makes it the cheapest such accessory Samsung's ever made. It should start shipping on November 20, by the way.

The recent Gear VR is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Note5, S6 edge+, S6 edge, and S6. So it's also the Samsung VR headset with the widest handset support yet. Do note that the Gear VR will not work without having one of these phones inserted into it, so if you have a different smartphone you can't hold advantage of all that VR greatness it provides.
