As you can see in the image above, it is now black (that’s not to say there won’t be a white one), and looks pretty much like the current consumer edition device on the market. with the focus wheel on the top. However, there could be some changes under the hood about which we will know more once it becomes official. One thing’s certain though: with USB Type-C replacing the Micro USB port on the upcoming Note, Samsung has to release a new Gear VR, as the consumer edition features Micro USB connectivity, making the new Note 7 incompatible.
