Following the debut of the Gear VR at Samsung’s Unpacked event, Berlin, in September 2014, the hardware manufacturer has announced the next big addition to it’s press conference calendar. The next Unpacked will take place in Barcelona on 1st March 2015; the event which will probably host the reveal of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S6 in addition to it’s own model of Gear VR.
The rumours of a new Gear VR model began last month, with the suggestion being that the device would be specifically designed to house the Samsung Galaxy S6. Presently, it is expected that the latest model in Samsung’s flagship series of smartphones will feature a curved design, which suggests that the current Gear VR would not be able to house the device even with some kind of adapter.
The Unpacked event will take place a day before the Mobile World Congress, which is prior to the April date originally discussed in VRFocus‘ rumour coverage last month. Of course, GearVR.uk will keep you updated with any further information in the run-up to this event.
