Samsung Galaxy Note7 Tipped to Launch With New Gear VR
  • The new Gear VR to be priced at roughly Rs 6,700
  • It is expected to look the same as its predecessor
  • The headset to launch alongside Galaxy Note7 on August 2

Samsung is all set to announce the Galaxy Note7 at its Unpacked event on August 2. According to a new report, the company will also launch a new compatible Gear VR headset at the event.

The new Gear VR headset has been leaked in a blurry image on PhonesReview. The image does not show any difference in the headset from its predecessor with respect to design. However, the new headset is said to sport a USB Type-C port. The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is expected to be the first in the tech giant's line-up to make the switch to USB Type-C.

The old Gear VR sports a Micro-USB port, and therefore won't be compatible with the Galaxy Note7. In Europe, the initial price will be at EUR 90 (roughly Rs. 6,700).
