Samsung Gear 360 with True 4K Videoing

The Samsung Gear 360 is cute, functional, but it has one ‘flaw’: it is a freaking ball which, frankly speaking, makes handling it a tad awkward. It does have a tripod which you can close up the leg to use it as a handle, but you don’t have to settle for less. Apparently, Samsung realized this and has, on its new Gear 360, incorporate a handle which makes the device looks like Eve from Wall-E on diet and also with no limbs, obviously. Samsung made little effort to introduce the new Gear 360 at March 29’s event, but all you really need to know is, it is now more awesome.

How awesome? Well, the awesome list includes the obvious updated design, live streaming capability to popular platforms like Facebook, YouTube, or Samsung VR, and of course, true 4K videoing enabled by a pair of CMOS 8.4MP fisheye cameras facilitated by DRIMe5s image processor. The device is IP53 rated for resistant against dust and water and it has built-in dual-band wireless 802.11a/b/g/n/ac with WiFi Direct support and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity for live streaming and also for editing your footages or stills on compatible devices.

We know the new Gear 360 comes loaded with a 1,160 mAh lithium-ion battery, but what we do not know is, how long the battery will afford you per charge. Last but not least, it has a microSD card slot that supports up to 256GB for accepting microSD for storing recorded footages and stills. It is not known if complimentary card will be included (we are not hopeful it does though). No words on the pricing and the availability, but a bunch of them is already in the wild cos’ Samsung had so generously gave each attendee of the Unboxing event on March 29 a unit.
