As tech firms partners together to produce fascinating devices, Huawei and Insta360 are the latest combining to produce a clip-on 360-degree smartphone camera.
In a recent event held in Beijing, the company made an announcement on the new Honor VR Camera ““We’re thrilled to partner with Huawei to grow the global community of 360-degree and VR creators. Like us, Huawei is committed to reinventing photography, and they believe in our products as the best way to introduce users to the future of the camera,” said JK Liu, founder, and CEO of Insta360.
In addition, the phone maker said the device is capable of 3K photography and seamless live streaming which can be enabled on social platforms such as Youtube and Twitter, as Facebook is currently under test with the 360 live support. Plus, you can capture and share photos and videos as well as do live streams through its companion app.
The clip-on 360-degree camera works with Android and iOS platforms and can be attached to a smartphone’s USB port, which should allow users to download the Insta360’s app to shoot.
The next big thing seems to be Virtual Reality (VR) as social media platforms- Facebook and Youtube inclusive have already rolled out support for 360 live degree videos. And with a clip-on camera like the new Honor VR, live streaming in 360 degrees is likely to become easy.
Just like the Honor VR, Nokia Ozo has gained attention in the gaming industry as 3D movies nd games can be watched and played using virtual reality headsets. There is really hope in the VR market as manufacturers seem to take every innovation to the next level.
