LG offers up free VR headset with purchase of a G3 at select U.S. retailers

The headset is basically a plastic version of Google Cardboard, but built specifically for the LG G3 with cutouts for the device's rear buttons. Like Google Cardboard, all users have to do is slot their device into the VR headset to start enjoying virtual reality content right from their device.

In addition to the VR for G3 headset, buyers will also score a QR code in the box that, once scanned, gives them access to free virtual reality game downloads.

Though LG announced such a deal was coming back in February, today marks its official rollout to stores in the U.S.. LG doesn't list which specific retailers are participating in the promotion, but chances are it won't be hard to find one.

  • I wonder if/when they'll make this available to the current g3 owners? Posted via the AC App on my LG G3

  • Quick let's do whatever we can to sell the stock of G3s we have! I have been seeing a ton of G3 commercials lately, you would think it's a brand new phone! Posted via the Android Central App
  • They are already going to start selling the g4 within a month or two so out with the old in with the new Posted via the Android Central App
  • Guys
    S4's and M7's are still being sold for great prices. I'm sure the same will be true with G3's. Their technology and capabilities are far from obsolete.
  • True they will still sell them but I'm still sure they want to get rid of some of the stock. Posted via the Android Central App
  • They all do that. Been seeing a ton of S5 Comercials, Right before the new iPhones come out, they do it too. Why not try to sell off as many as they can before the new one comes out? Makes sense to me. Not all people know about or pay attention to when the new models are coming out.
  • I ordered a G3 from Amazon today but didn't see anything about this. But the phone cost a penny, so no complaints. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hey everybody, why dont you flood the market with this PaperVR bologna and trivialize the entire concept even before the real thing arrives...
  • This looks to be very basic (I bought something like this from Homido the other week for $79 bucks) instead of something similar to the Samsung GearVR, which has controls on the headset.
  • It's a plastic LG specific cardboard that was designed to hold the G3. It was not meant to be a Samsung Oculus. Rooted Galaxy S III Stock Galaxy Note 4
    Rooted LG G2

  • Just to follow up, I received my Verizon LG G3 yesterday from Amazon but it did not include any VR gear.
