If you’re thinking that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and its huge high-resolution display would make for a perfect virtual reality experience, especially when paired with the4 Samsung Gear VR< think again. According to a post on Reddit, it has been discovered that the Galaxy Note 5 won’t play nicely with the Gear VR.
Now you might be thinking it is odd that the Galaxy Note 5 won’t fit, especially since both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy Note 4 share the display size, but chances are due to its difference design and specifications, it won’t be a perfect fit. It has also been pointed out that there are no virtual reality-related apps available for the device either.
Now it is possible that Samsung will need to create some kind of special tray to accommodate the Galaxy Note 5, which is what they did for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but for now if you wanted a virtual reality experience, you’d either have to buy the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S6, or the S6 Edge.
That being said Samsung had recently confirmed that they are working on a new Gear VR headset. Details of the device remain unknown and is a bit of a mystery for now, but perhaps the new Gear VR headset will play nicely with the Galaxy Note 5 and future Samsung devices. Either way we might learn more at IFA 2015 so check back with us then for the details.
