Samsung confirms it sold 5 million Gear VR mobile headsets

RATE THIS! +24

Samsung Electronics America president Tim Baxter announced that the company has sold 5 million Gear VR virtual reality headsets for mobile devices to date. The South Korean electronics giant made the announcement at its press event at CES 2017, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week. Consumers have viewed over 10 million hours of video.

 
That’s good news for the VR industry, particularly software makers, as most reports have suggested that VR is off to a slow start. But it confirms that mobile VR is accounting for the bulk of the market so far, in contrast to PC-based VR hardware.
