Huawei, after unveiling its new Honor V9, is also expected to announce soon the first 360-degree camera for its smartphones
Official information is still scarce, so we move in the slippery slope of rumors. The only certain information is that Huawei, through its Honor brand, is about to announce a camera developed in collaboration with Insta360 at the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona.
The Honor VR Camera - this should be its official name - is basically an accessory with a clip closure to be applied to your smartphone. It's not yet clear if it will be compatible only with Huawei/Honor models or with those of other manufacturers as well. The camera supports 3K photos and live streaming and allows, also, to save and share your own 360-degree videos via a special application developed by Insta360. The Honor VR Camera, most likely, will be available internationally (and not just in China), but the price and availability are still top secret.
The Honor VR Camera, from the few leaked information, still remains shrouded in mystery to some extent. To shed some light, however, there are some images circulating on the web. So, at first glance, it has a dual wide-angle lens similar to other models of this type already in circulation. And it seems to be equipped with a USB-C connection to connect it directly to the smartphone. To find out more information, we'll just have to wait for the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to open its doors.
