SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics has launched a virtual reality headset for its new Galaxy Note 4 phablet using technology from Oculus VR, a company that Facebook Inc acquired for US$2 billion (Sing $2.5 billion)

The wireless headset, called Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, allows users to watch videos and play games in a virtual reality setting.

Samsung, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, unveiled the Galaxy Note 4 phablet earlier on Wednesday.

The headset, into which the Note 4 can be docked, will have four visual settings that simulate experiences such as sitting in a theatre or being on stage.
