Galaxy S7 is the only model used for the Occulus Rift Gear demo. The model was designed keeping in mind the launch of VR experience. Currently there is only one VR gear available in the market so the driver and display support is exclusive to Occulus VR. In future they may update the Android on the phone to support other gears. As per MWC 2016 statement, both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, both support VR gears.
