It is a mobile virtual reality headset developed by Samsung Electronics, in collaboration with Oculus, and it is manufactured by Samsung. The headset was released on 27 November 2015.
When in use, a compatible Samsung Galaxy device (Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge+, or Galaxy S7/S7 Edge) acts as the headset’s display and processor, while the Gear VR unit itself acts as the controller that contains the high field of view, as well as a custom inertial measurement unit, or IMU, for rotational tracking, which connects to the smartphone via micro-USB. This IMU is more accurate and well calibrated with lower latency than inner smartphone IMUs, such as those used for Google Cardboard.
It also includes a touchpad and back button on the side, as well as a proximity sensor to detect when the headset is on. The touchpad and button allow for a standard minimum input ability for users to interact with the virtual environments, whereas Google Cardboard devices only feature a button.
