But it looks like this year won’t herald the release of the Gear VR, at least not locally, with Samsung releasing this statement:
“Samsung Electronics Australia wishes to advise that the Gear VR on-sale date has been revised to early 2015. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
That means no VR for Note 4 owners, and no real concrete date as for when they’ll be able to jump on, despite demos of the units appearing around Australia already.
We’re checking with Samsung to find out what the hold up is, especially when it just launched in America and was looking good for a Christmas-ready release in Australia. Hopefully, we’ll have more information on this shortly.
