Samsung’s 360 degree camera launches On April 29


Samsung first revealed its 360-degree video camera at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year and now, the company is finally ready to release it on April 29th.

The Samsung Gear 360 features two cameras crammed into a sphere. It even comes with a tripod that makes the whole package given off an adorable robot vibe.

In more serious news, each camera is capable of capturing video at 3,840 x 1,920 resolution at 30 frames per second. Video is stitched together seamlessly into near 4k resolution, and can be viewed on your phone by swiping around. You can also use it to capture 30 mega pixel still images.

You’ll need a lot of space to store all those videos and photos, so Samsung is allowing users to bring up to 128GB of storage via microSD card. This equates to about 140 minutes of video recording.

The camera is also IP53 certified, which means it’s dust and splash proof. It’s a little disappointing that Samsung didn’t make the Gear 360 waterproof like its Galaxy S7 smartphone.
