Samsung Gear VR (2016) now available for $59.99 from Amazon

Samsung launched its updated Gear VR headset back in 2015, and later bundled it for free with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones in the first half of 2016. The updated headset can now be availed from Amazon for a discounted price of $59.99.

As the company is planning to launch Gear VR 2 in the near future, the older one might get discounted further. It is rather strange that Samsung itself hasn't lowered the price of the headset which is now more than a year old and is selling the 2015 version for $59.99. Gear VR 2016 is still being sold for its original $99 price, which probably may seem expensive for something that will be replaced soon.

Interested buyers should consider the Amazon deal, which is nearly $40 less than Samsung's price. There is no indication whether this is a limited time offer, but since it is being sold by an independent seller, the stock might not last long and you should order while you can. There are sellers who have listed the device at about $70 in case the stock does run out.
