Three versions of the Gear VR can be found :


– Gear VR Second Innovator Edition, SM-R321 (inside/out: Black/White)

This device supports only the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

We recommend to use this version of the Gear VR because of the fan inside which prevent the lens fogging.

This device supports six Samsung Galaxy devices: the S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, Note 5, S7, and S7 edge.
