The Samsung Gear VR is one of the most popular virtual reality (VR) headsets in the world right now. Mobile VR is currently leading the market in terms of number of units sold. Samsung are interested in growing that number still further, and have announced a special offer for UK residents who might be interested in getting their hands on a Samsung Gear VR along with the recently launched Gear VR Controller.
UK consumers who buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ have the opportunity to claim a Gear VR with Controller for just £50 (GBP). In addition, new Gear VR owners can claim a free videogaming or entertainment bundle from the Oculus Store which is worth up to £39.
To make the offer even more tempting, consumers who trade in their old smartphone device can receive cashback and a £50 voucher towards a new Galaxy handset. The offers can even be combined for an even bigger discount.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 5.8 inch quad HD display, using the full-phone display that Samsung refer to as the ‘infinity display’. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 5GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Galaxy S8+ has similar specs, but boasts a 6.2 incha display, also using the infinity display. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is currently available from the Samsung website for £689, with the Galaxy S8+ priced at £779. The Gear VR with Controller usually retails at £119.
The Samsung Gear VR is not the only VR headset that the Galaxy S8 supports. As announced at Google I/O earlier this year, the Google Daydream is also supported by the Galaxy S8 and S8+, giving Galaxy S8 owners a choice of VR headsets.
