Samsung has launched the latest version of its Oculus-powered Gear VR headset at MWC 2017
and for the first time around, the South Korean company has introduced a
VR controller that goes along with the headset. The new controller is
aimed at providing users with convenience while interacting with the
user interface in VR apps and games with the help of the headset.

introduced Gear VR controller offers users with convenient one-hand
control and provides better motion interaction with minimised head
movement. The touchpad on the motion controller provides quicker
selection and interaction within VR apps. With the controller, users get
the ability to “point, drag and drop, tilt, shoot, among other actions,
while the Trigger allows for enhanced gaming experiences,” the company
said. The Home, Volume and Back keys located on the controller help
users to navigate easily within the interface.
Samsung, we are focused on setting and exceeding the standard for VR
experiences, making them even more accessible and delivering the highest
in quality,” Younghee Lee, executive vice president of mobile
communications business at Samsung Electronics, was quoted as saying in
company’s blog post.
“The Gear VR with Controller expands our VR ecosystem to help consumers
get more engaged and immersed in VR content – whether it’s games or
videos,” Lee said.
