Galaxy S6 Gear VR preorders begin on Friday

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are supported by a new version of the Gear VR Innovator Edition, and  you’ll be able to order the headset starting Friday, April 24.

Preorders will be available from BestBuy.com on Friday, and you’ll be able to find one online from either Best Buy or Samsung’s website starting on May 8. There’s one model that supports both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, so don’t worry about compatibility, just don’t buy the model for the Galaxy Note 4.

The headset has been slightly redesigned for both new flagship smartphones and features a small overall sized, redesigned head straps that are more comfortable, and offers better airflow with a built-in fan. It also features its own microUSB port so you can power it without sucking life from your smartphone.

The Gear VR offers an amazing taste of virtual reality, and it’s quite mind blowing when you realize your phone is powering the entire experience. Samsung didn’t discuss pricing, but it should come in around $200, which is what the Gear VR for the Note 4 costs.
