Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has filed a trademark for “Gear VR” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This is an indication that Samsung is planning to launch a virtual reality headset.


The users may be required to plug in a Samsung Galaxy phone, which would act as the display and provide the processing power.

The rear-facing camera of the phone would let users keep an eye on the outside world while watching movies or playing games.
