Samsung at their Unpacked event has just announced, to accompany the release of their new flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, it will also release an updated version of the Gear VR to be compatible with these new smart phones.

The new phones feature 5.1 inch quad Super AMOLED screens, but it’s not clear how the new Gear VR might cope with anomalies caused by the S6 Edge curved screen edges.

No details as to if the new mobile VR headset is to include further enhancements as yet.
