Telus is now selling the Essential 360 camera for $49.99.
The 360-degree modular camera accessory was launched at the price of $270 CAD in Canada this past fall. The camera attaches to the Essential Phone via magnet and allows the device to capture 360-degree stills and 4K video. It features two 12-megapixel sensors, a pair of fisheye lenses and an onboard Snapdragon 652 processor.
Comparatively, Samsung is currently charging $299.99 CAD for its Bluetooth-connected Gear 360 accessory, which also captures 4K video and 360-degree stills and is a standalone gadget that can be used with other Android devices.
Those that don’t have an Essential Phone won’t be able to use this gadget. Currently, the Essential Phone costs $460 outright through Telus — the lowest price for any Snapdragon 835-toting device in the Canadian market.
When ordering online, the device comes with free shipping, a 15-day money back guarantee and one year limited warranty.
