Samsung Gear VR

What Formats Can I Watch?

Samsung usually has two versions of their phones, so determining what format your phone can play will depend on where it was purchased. The Galaxy S10 can play 2300p VR videos. All other Samsung phones are split into two groups:

  1. Phones bought in the US, China, Canada, and Japan should be able to play 1920p VR videos.
  2. Phones bought anywhere else in the world should be able to play 2300p VR videos, though older ones may heat up quickly when trying to play high resolution videos.
