Samsung's Gear 360 Action Camera Gets Its Own Manager App, Compatible With Galaxy S6, S7, And Note 5 Series Phones

It's impossible to launch a new flagship phone these days without some fancy (and expensive) companion devices. At least that seems to be the approach that Samsung and LG are taking, and the former has a very interesting 360-degree action camera on the way. The Gear 360 captures both still photos and video in (you guessed it) 360 degrees thanks to dual lenses and a ball-like design.

VSN Mobil Announces The V.360, A Crazy Snapdragon 800-Powered, 360-Degree, 16MP Camcorder With An IP67 Rating

Florida-based startup VSN Mobil's new V.360 is such a camera, one that records everything going on in a 360 degree area around it. It's not the first device to do this, but with its 16MP imager capable of capturing content in full 1080p, it should do so quite prettily. And for those crunching numbers, 1080p with a 360 camera comes out to a resolution of 1080 x 6480.


The V.360 will run Android 4.4 and come powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with an Adreno™ 330 GPU.
