The new Gear VR will work with the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones, taking advantage of those beautiful new Super AMOLED panels and their QHD resolutions. The new Gear VR is 15% smaller than the original Gear VR, has a USB port on it, redesigned straps which give it "better weight balance" and mechanical ventilation that will make wearing the Gear VR for longer periods of time more comfortable.
