Samsung Gear 360 Pro camera to work with Apple iOS in 2016

Rumors are flying that Samsung may be working on a Pro variant of its Gear 360 camera.

Samsung plans to launch the Gear 360 Pro camera in 2017, around the same time that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will also be launched.


Already, it’s selling online for US$350 and is quite a bargain for makers of 360 Degree YouTube Videos as noted in US$350 Samsung Gear 360 selling online still a YouTuber’s VR Camera.

As no details have leaked, expect improved image and video quality over the device that was launched back in February 2016 as noted in How Samsung Gear 360 is a Creative Tool for YouTube VR Content.

What’s interesting about this leak is the fact that Samsung plans to bring support for the Apple iPhone.


An app will be launched that will not only work on the Samsung Galaxy S8 but also the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7S. Apple has which has impressed me thus far with their courage to remove the headphone jack and introduce a dual lens camera.

So too has Samsung, displaying courage under fire, literally as their Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s catch fire and have to be recalled as pointed out in Samsung Galaxy Note 7 being recalled due to faulty battery.

As usual, details may be forthcoming soon. Just don’t hold your breath!
