Just one day after Samsung announced the debut date of its Galaxy S7 smartphone, there are new rumblings that the company will also release a long-rumored virtual reality camera.
Samsung may have offered some hint as to its VR intentions later this month via its promotion for the Feb. 21 unveiling of the S7.
Although that announcement was focused on the next iteration of the company’s flagship smartphone, the teaser video on Sunday included Samsung’s Gear VR device prominently displayed as part of the brief visual.
The new device will be called the Gear 360, according to a report from SamMobile, and will house two 180-degree fisheye lenses.
Additional features included in the Gear 360, according to the report, are an internal battery, wireless Bluetooth connectively, a Gear 360 app (which will include a gallery and time lapse feature), internal memory for video and images and the ability to switch between 180-degree and 360-degree panoramic recording.
