Samsung may be preparing to step up its virtual reality game, with a recent report suggesting the company may launch a so-called “Gear 360 Pro” camera alongside the Galaxy S8 smartphone.
So what will the Pro version of the already released camera bring? The report, which comes from SamMobile, mentions that the VR camera will offer improved video and audio capabilities, among other features, but specific details about the camera are so far a little scarce.
The original Gear 360 camera was launched earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, bringing features like a 15MP sensor andthe ability to capture almost 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. The camera was generally quite well received, but there’s always room for improvement, which is where the Gear 360 Pro will come in.
