It looks like Lenovo is working on more VR-related products than just the Phab 2 Pro Tango smartphone. The company has also revealed a new live-streaming 360-degree camera.
The device was reportedly expected to be revealed during the company’s Tech World press conference, but never made it to the stage. A Lenovo executive, however, did discuss the 360-degree camera in an exclusive interview with virtual reality-focused website UploadVR.
The camera reportedly utilizes Movidius Myraid 2 processors, has the ability to stitch together 360-degree video and can live-stream content wirelessly. Other than these facts, however, very little is known about the device so far.
A variety of smartphone manufacturers, including LG and Samsung, have revealed 360-degree cameras this year. While the image quality of LG’s G5 was underwhelming, the 360 Cam works as a decent entry-level 360-degree camera. Samsung also revealed its own Gear 360 camera at Mobile World Congress this year.
