We could see another 600,000 Gear VR units make their way to people’s faces through this new promotion bundle.
Back in March, Samsung announced that any Galaxy S7 and S7 edge pre-order would include a free Gear VR headset with purchase. According to Samsung, the offer received an overwhelming response, capping out at over 300,000 Gear VR units to customers.
Now Samsung is bringing the offer back, but this time they are expanding it to all their latest smartphones, just in time for Father’s Day.
If you purchase a Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note5 between June 1 and June 19, you will be eligible for a free Gear VR plus an Oculus content bundle. Although its not clear what content will be bundled, the first promotion included varying titles like EVE: Gunjack, Land’s End and Anshar Wars 2. Samsung states the Gear VR and content bundle have an estimated total value of $150.
When reading the bundle offer’s fine print, Samsung states they have up to 600,000 Gear VR headsets to distribute for this promotion.
If all the bundle offers are filled, another 600,000 units would continue Samsung’s rapid growth of Gear VR adoption. Samsung announced last month that over one million people used Gear VR, some of which could be attributed to March’s promotion fulfillment getting into the hands of new users that have never tried VR.
