Samsung Note 7 and New GearVR

Samsung has showed us they are in the VR game for keeps !

The new Galaxy Note 7 (they are skipping the note 6 from note 5) is the next generation of their flagship phone sporting intentional VR capabilities and not just a cardboard like conversion.

But with it’s release comes a revision of GearVR that features a wider field of view (FOV) and will now fit many models of their phones and likely the future Galaxy S8.

The phone itself has no real bragging features except for the new scanner that they seem to have beat Apple to the punch in delivering to a phone. But enhancements to the camera system are always in order each phone release.

Much of this was somewhat expected as we await the new breed of CPU and GPU capabilities in processors that will be in the marketplace next year for mobile phones.

So we await the Super VR quality capabilities from those, that may rival console game systems next year depending on the system RAM and Floating Point capabilities (FLOPS). Enjoy the new wider field of view of the latest Gear VR of 101 degrees over the old 96 degrees.
