Samsung Gear 360 price finally unveiled
Equipped with two 195-degree cameras that overlap, the Gear 360 captures 360 photos and videos (at nearly 4K resolution) by combining the videos from the two on-board cameras. This smart collage happens on your phone and the camera is compatible with Samsung's top-end devices that are capable of taking this load: the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge +, Note 5, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
We knew all of this already but one pressing question about the Gear 360 remained unanswered: what's its price? B&H has now listed the camera in its catalog and reveals its full retail price: $350.
Not bad for such an innovative camera, isn't it? Here's what you get in a nutshell with the Gear 360:
- Dual 15MP CMOS Sensors
- Dual f/2.0 Fisheye Lenses
- 3840 x 1920 Video Recording at 30 fps
- 30MP Still Images in Dual Lens Mode
- Dual & Single Lens Modes
- Built-In Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & NFC
- Supports microSD Card Up to 128GB
- Google Street View Compatible
It will still be a while until the Gear 360 is available - Samsung has said it will go on sale in Q2 2016 (which likely means the end of June) - but you can already start saving up those pretty pennies.
