Dom-Samsung-Gear-VR-01

According to leaked documents spotted by GForGames, Samsung is planning a December release for its new Gear VR virtual reality headset that pairs with the recently launched Galaxy Note 4. The document, which we haven’t been able to verify as authentic, also claims that the headset will arrive for 200,000 Won in Korea. That’s under $200 in USD (approximately $187).

To our understanding, this document is a Q&A “training” sheet for customer service employees, containing answers to potential questions that may be raised by customers, including “when will the VR be launched?” or “how much will it cost?”

It’s worth noting that GForGames often reports on unconfirmed rumors from sources of varying credibility. We’ll have to wait until December to find out for sure, but it’s possible that date is only for the Korean market. The document claims a Korean launch is planned for December 1.

Samsung officially unveiled its Oculus Rift-powered Gear VR headset for the Galaxy Note 4 earlier this year. The Note 4 officially launched last month and continues to roll out to new countries, but we’ve yet to get official word on pricing and availability for the Gear VR.
