When Samsung’s much-anticipated Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch later this year, they’ll be accompanied by a brand new version of the company’s Gear VR headset. Designed for both the S6 and the S6 Edge, the latest Gear VR Innovator Edition retains the same immersive virtual reality experience as its Note 4-based counterpart, while introducing some handy upgrades in both comfort and performance.
Like its predecessor, this latest version of Gear VR is a virtual reality headset that uses a smartphone as its display; in this case, the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. The peripheral has the same white-and-black aesthetic as the Note 4 model, though it is 15 percent smaller to account for the not-as-massive footprints of the new Galaxy S6 devices.
