Obviously there are rigs available just like the Nokia oz that’s designed for expert use, but if you desired some thing greater handy, Huawei has you protected.

Huawei has introduced the honour VR camera, a 360-degree clip-on camera that works with the phones. The camera turned into created in partnership with Insta360, and it supports “3K images,” as well as live-streaming capabilities.

The VRl camera may be able to taking pictures photos and videos in 360-degree with image stills of as much as 3K in resolution, mean that they may be quite high-quality. The precise specs of this camera are nevertheless a bit of a thriller in the intervening time, however probably we need to have more information at MWC 2017.

It is also not acknowledged if the camera will work with a range of different smartphones, or with just Huawei’s own mobiles.Ultimate however now not least, it is presently doubtful how a lot the device will priced — however it might be surprising to see that it available at any greater than $350, that is the price of the Samsung gear 360. In any case, it is probable we will pay attention greater about the smartphone at mobile world Congress.

What we do understand is, Huawei does intend to market this specially for the honor brand, and the camera will provide a seamless livestreaming experience. From looking at the digital camera ball itself, on the bottom, there’s a USB type-C plug. This plug is going at once into the port for your device, with all controls being accomplished from inside an application.

The truth that the Honor VR camera support live-streaming is also a nice touch — platforms like Facebook live have turn out to be extremely popular, no longer only for organizations and publishers, but also for the common individual. Facebook has also been pushing 360-degree video content, means that the honour VR camera could be a massive deal for Facebook Live.
