Samsung has already announced its Samsung Gear VR: SM-R323 for Galaxy S7, but now rumors are spreading on the Twitter about the successor Gear VR: SM-R324 for Galaxy S8. The New Gear VR headset might be same when its comes to the design and dimensions but Gear VR for Galaxy S8 may include one more accessory in the box, and this time it seems that Samsung is trying to compete Google’s Daydream View throughout the process.
Samsung Gear VR SM-R324 for Galaxy S8 might Feature Dedicated Controller
Next Samsung Gear VR SM-R324 might come with a dedicated controller, and now Users Will no Longer Need to go for the Third-Party Bluetooth Controllers as an extra purchase.
This rumor about the Samsung Gear VR SM-R324 for Galaxy S8 is coming out of the Twitter, which compares the model number of the old Gear VR for Galaxy S7 with the New Gear VR for Galaxy S8.
Gear VR for the Galaxy S7: SM-R323
Gear VR for the Galaxy S8: SM-R324
The main difference between the upcoming Gear VR SM-R324 for Galaxy S8 and the Gear VR SM-R323 for Galaxy S7 is that the future one will likely to come up with the dedicated remote controller which is quite similar to what the Daydream View offers.
Adding this to the package bundle of Gear VR for Galaxy S8, it’s a very good idea as now users will have the ease of access while gaming, multimedia, and playbacks and even they need not have an extra purchase of the third party controllers.
Samsung Gear VR SM-R324 is coming – same as SM-R323 for S7, but gets different front cover to hold Galaxy S8 – and a single hand controller.

But will the addition to the package not change extra to the user is the major issue. But having a look at the previous one its sounds like they do charge as Samsung announced the current-gen Gear VR, it was retailing for $99, whereas Daydream View carries a price of $79.
