Samsung Reports 5M+ Gear VR User Base

Announced at Samsung’s keynote address at the recently concluded CES 2017, Samsung confirms a user base of 5 million-plus who has a Gear VR headset.


This was achieved only from November of 2015, when the Gear VR was launched, becoming one of the few quality VR headgear for mobile devices, and only challenged so far by Google’s more recently released Daydream initiative.

The Samsung Gear VR’s success will ideally lead more users to want to try the “full” VR experience offered by the Rift or the Vive, and/or increase awareness for the technology and its nascent application potential to a multitude of uses.
