Samsung Galaxy Note 9 users can get free Gear VR adapter

27 August 2018 2

Samsung has now announced that any Galaxy Note 9 user can ask for a free adapter if he wants to make use of the Gear VR headset with the device. It is offering free adaptors as the latest phablet features slightly different dimensions than the Galaxy Note 8 which does not allow it to be used with the VR headset directly.

The free adaptor can be booked by contacting Samsung customer support either on phone call or via online chat. It said that the time to ship the adapter can be up to 2 weeks from the date of confirming the booking. This is indeed a good gesture from the company considering that it has no imminent plans of releasing a new Gear VR headset.

Its current generation Gear VR headset was launched last year which also comes with a controller. It is compatible with all the Samsung flagships from last year along with other select models. There are no words on when exactly the next-generation Gear VR will be released but it is certainly working on the HMD Odyesse+ PC VR headset.
