I've asked a few times and get various responses;
'We weren't aware that it needed one'
'It's still in development' (despite being available in the US)
'Keep an eye out for notifications'
I even asked them about buying one in the US and getting it shipped over (which as well as being faster, is likely to be cheaper) but they advised only to buy from my own sales area - Without actually confirming if there would be any issue.
i bought a couple from amazon
Samsung Gear VR (SM-R325) with Controller, Orchid Gray
I belive sm-r325 is the right version number - worked ok but ouch those chromatic abberations (color distortion in peripheral view) that ALL these VR systems is not nice
Im sure i bought the right version SM-R325 please see quote and link from samsungs web site below :¬)
How the Gear VR with Controller (Galaxy Note8 Edition) is Different
Both are Amazing and Different...
well i can confirm i purchased 2 from that amazon link (maybe they imported them to make a few bucks)
i jsut checked it was the right model number :¬)
box shows the correct model number and (now compatible with galaxy note 8) in blue and says it again on the back
anyways hope it helped
This model of Gear VR is not currently available for purchase within the UK, so we'd be unable to advise further on where you can get your hands on this.
The link @Madusmacus provided is an option for you, but we'd be unable to verify whether this is an EU model. If the VR wasn't intended for use within the EU, our support for the product would be limited to troubleshooting.
