Facebook (via Oculus Rift) is doing it, Google is doing it, Microsoft is doing it, Samsung is doing it and so is Sony. Now LG too wants a piece of the pie; LG said earlier this week that a free VR set awaits the users of the LG G3 smartphone. The new VR headset, called VR for G3, will start retailing in South Korea from next week followed by a worldwide launch in select countries. VR for G3 features a small plastic cased set, similar in design to that of Google Cardboard, will enable existing and new users of G3 to use VR apps from the Play Store since G3 runs Android. Running VR apps should not be much troublesome since the G3 boasts of an excellent hardware combo of a Qualcomm quadcore Snapdragon processor with 3GB RAM. But unfortunately, specs for VR for G3 are yet to be announced. The VR for G3 debuts in all locations where the other South Korean rival, Samsung, is selling Gear VR for the galaxy S4 and also the upcoming Galaxy S6. Both VR sets look promising but what sets the VR for G3 apart is that it's free, unlike the $310 Gear VR costs. So, if you're a G3 user, get high. If not, maybe order a new one?
