Samsung and Oculus have announced that mobile VR will be available to the public this fall. The first widely distributed Gear VR headset will land before Black Friday this November.

The head-mounted display will be compatible with all of Samsung’s 2015 flagship smartphones (Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge). Pricing has been confirmed at $99.

The unit has a redesigned feel that’s 22 percent lighter. The touchpad has also been redesigned for ease of use.
