Yes. It is true that your smartphone already have at least one camera, but can it do 360 imaging? Nope. Not at this point anyways and so, if you want 360 imaging right off one single device, i.e. your smartphone, the ION360 U 4K 360-Degree Smartphone Camera is for you. ION360 U 4K 360-Degree Smartphone Camera is comprised of a 360 camera that goes on top of your smartphone and a case that serves to protect your phone. In addition to capturing 7.2MP stills in 360, the camera is also capable of shooting 360 videos in glorious, eye-watering 4K resolution which you can also choose to live stream to Facebook or YouTube (be mindful of your data plan, tho)
A built-in 1,300 mAh battery allows up to two hours of recording time and the same battery can also recharge your device should the need arise. It works with a dedicate app that launches automatically once the ION360 case and camera are snapped on your device. Coming in at 4.3 oz, or 122g, it will add some noticeable amount of weight to your handset, but hey, at least it will be just one device. Hmmm, why do I feel like ION360 is giving Samsung a run for their money?
ION360 U 4K 360-Degree Smartphone Camera is available for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and in a choice of two colors: dark gray and turquoise. There’s a July special going on where you can pre-order a unit at $100 off, for $249 (original price: $349).
