Samsung came up with the Gear VR headset two years ago in the market, and it actually performed pretty much well. Samsung following the year made numerous smartphone models compatible with the new Gear VR device, but since last year it looked as if the Korean tech giant got bored with the VR and did not manufacture even a single smartphone compatible with the technology.
However, the good news is that Samsung hasn’t stopped supporting the virtual reality technology yet, as the company is back with some brand new models that will support Gear VR headsets. A report says that Samsung upcoming flagship lineup of Galaxy S10 phones will be compatible with the existing Gear VR headsets.
A Samsung spokesperson in one of the statements said, “Yes, the latest model Gear VR will work. Gear VR comes with an adapter that will work with S10”. The spokesperson also mentioned that the Gear VR would work with all four Galaxy S10 variants.
As the spokesperson said that the adapter required to connect Gear VR to Galaxy S10 would come with the VR headsets, it means that it will be pretty much easier for the users to connect their Galaxy S10 with the VR headsets as compared to the Note 9 as Samsung did not provide adapter for the last year’s model.
Though Gear VR is capable of assisting different phone sizes as it comes with spring-loaded catches, Samsung should still work on to limit the size and shapes of its phones to fit the device. Besides this, the Korean tech giant should also preload specific software in the smartphones that will notify whenever a Galaxy phone is plugged in.
So, one thing is clear now that Samsung has not given up yet on the VR technology as it still is manufacturing devices that are compatible with VR headsets.
