Users will be able to use several compatible apps and games available on the Google Play store, all they need to do is club the headset and G3 smartphone together. G3 buyers can also download the VR game "Robobliteration" using the in-box code.

At an event in June last year, Google launched the affordable Cardboard VR headset. The new virtual reality headset features a Rear Key layout design based on the G3's design. The VR headset and smartphone can also be clubbed with the Bluetooth headset LG Tone Infinim for use, which was launched in November last year.

A scrollable neodymium ring magnet on the side of the VR for G3 will work with smartphone's gyroscope sensor to enable browsing through apps on the smartphone is without touching its display.

"While still in its infancy, this is just the beginning of the virtual reality movement which until recently was expensive and inaccessible to everyday consumers," said Chris Yie, Vice President and Head of Marketing

Communications at the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company during the launch. "We are excited about VR for G3, and the rich ecosystem of developers and manufacturers who are innovating with Google Cardboard and making VR more easily accessible,'' Yie added.
