The Galaxy Note 10 has lots of new features over its predecessor, including an additional rear camera, an Infinity-O display, and a Snapdragon 855 processor, but there's one feature the Note 9 has that's missing from Samsung's new flagship.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are not compatible with the Gear VR headset. The Note 9 was compatible with Gear VR using a special adapter, but it doesn't sound like the Note 10 will get an adapter of its own.
"The Gear VR is not compatible with Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+," Samsung told Engadget. "We remain committed to innovating in VR and AR to deliver incredible new experiences to our consumers."
Gear VR enables Samsung Galaxy owners to enjoy virtual reality apps and games on the go using just their smartphone. It may not be the most high-end VR experience around, but it's handy since it lets you use VR anywhere and doesn't require a high-end PC. The lack of Gear VR support on the Note 10 probably won't be a dealbreaker for a ton of people, but there are likely some who will be bummed about its omission, especially since the Galaxy S10 that launched earlier this year does work with Gear VR.
