Create virtual reality apps, games, and experiences

Samsung's Gear VR headset is the next big thing in mobile VR and compatible Samsung Galaxy devices (Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note 5). The Gear VR headset offers a 96-degree field of view (FOV), with a Quad HD Super AMOLED display from the mobile device. The Gear VR headset also has state-of-the-art 3D sound for a fully immersive experience.

Gear VR leverages the Oculus platform for development and uses its content store for full monetization. The Oculus Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to build anything you can dream up for Gear VR. There's no need to worry about app compatibility across devices, as experiences built for Gear VR will work for each model.
