    Samsung Gear VR 217Redesigned for 2017, the new Gear VR SM-324 is structured to be lightweight and fit comfortably. The adjustable strap and foam cushioning let the Gear VR sit naturally, and the adjustable head strap secures the unit, letting you get the placement right whichever Samsung Galaxy phone you use.

  • This Gear VR is not the Note 8 edition. I have this one already and my Note 8 does not fit properly causing part of the phone to stick up on one side with subsequent lens distortion. The new varient that was released in the US a couple of weeks ago has not been announced in the UK yet (unless you have some inside knowledge?)
