Recently news, Samsung may release Gear VR in China before end of June, priced at 600-700 RMB. According to the news, the release of the Samsung Gear VR in China, may have two versions, a standard version which is the same version as the international version and a low price Geav VR at 100-300 RMB. If the news is true, then it should be a low-cost Gear VR version which will compete with Chinese smartphone VR product. The standard edition will continue to maintain a consistently high standard.
Base on our analysis, low-cost version Gear VR may not have all advanced features of the standard version, may only be designed and optimized ordinary mobile phone shell for Samsung mobile phones. And because Oculus are not selling in the Chinese market, so all Oculus VR function may not be realized, the most possibility is that Samsung and Chinese manufacturers make cooperation to enter Youku, iQIYI, and other Chinese websites.
