Samsung showcased its first consumer-grade 360-degree camera, the Gear 360, at MWC 2016 along with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. However, the camera was only recently released in a few markets around the world. Now, we’ve received information that the company is working on a new 360-degree camera. Dubbed Gear 360 Pro, the camera might be announced alongside the Galaxy S8 early next year.
The Gear 360 Pro could bring improved image and video quality as well as more features, but we are not sure about its aspects as of now. The South Korean smartphone giant is also working on the Gear 360 Manager app for the iOS platform, bringing iOS support for its 360-degree cameras. However, we don’t think iOS support will be released anytime soon. Samsung recently started beta-testing the Gear Manager app for iPhones to bring iOS support for its smartwatches and fitness trackers.
