Facebook acquired Oculus and Samsung have announced a new mobile VR headset called Gear VR which will be coming in November.

According to the Verge, Peter Koo, Senior VP, Samsung Mobile said that the new Gear VR will be compatible with Samsung’s whole 2015 line of smartphones which includes the Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+.

The latest Gear VR has a redesigned trackpad, which has a D-pad-style cross that could make it easier to feel when the users are in VR. It will be priced at USD 99.

Koo says that the new Gear VR will ship in November, before Black Friday in the U.S. and will be released worldwide shortly after that.

In addition, new Gear VR will have access to Netflix, TiVo, and Twitch.

Also, Minecraft’s Windows 10 version will be compatible with the Oculus Rift headset. The update will release in spring 2016.
