Samsung talks about Gear 360 Pro camera without actually unveiling it

We exclusively reported six months ago that Samsung is working on a new 360-degree camera called the Gear 360 Pro. It would be the successor to the Gear 360 that was launched alongside the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge at Mobile World Congress 2016. As per our information, the Gear 360 Pro would bring improved image and video quality as well as additional features. The Gear 360 Pro was recently spotted on an import tracker in India but not much about it has come up since then.

Samsung talked about the Gear 360 Pro camera during the Samsung Mobile Enterprise Summit at Mobile World Congress 2017 but it hasn’t actually unveiled the device. Suk-Jea Hahn, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics’ Global B2B Team, “introduced Samsung’s new Gear 360 Pro camera,” so says the company’s blog post but we’ve yet to see an actual announcement. It’s odd that a top executive of the company would mention a product that hasn’t been unveiled yet.

However, this does give hope that Samsung will soon launch the Gear 360 Pro camera, not to mention the fact that it confirms the camera’s existence. Perhaps we might get to see it on March 29 when Samsung unveils the Galaxy S8.
