To use a Gear VR with controller with a Note9, you’ll need to get the new adapter. Since the Note9 is bigger than other phones. The adapter helps accommodate its size.

This can be requested by contacting 0800 SAMSUNG (0800 726 786) to receive your complimentary adaptor. *contact number is for New Zealand residents.
