Officially unveiling the Samsung Galaxy 8 last week, the South Korean electronics company also announced a new version of the Gear 360 -- a 4K resolution-capable 360-degree camera with a refined design for easier use.

Compared to last year's release, this variation is equipped with 8.4-megapixel image sensors and bright lens F2.2 on both dual fisheye lenses. The Gear 360 can create high resolution images, as well as offering 4K video recording for the very first time.

As the name suggest, 360-degree videos or still images can be executed in various viewing modes, while editing tools, photo effects and filters offer customized options. In addition, the Gear 360 introduces real-time content sharing in high quality or standard formats when synced with a compatible smartphone or computer to showcase high-quality live broadcasting or direct uploading to platforms such as Facebook, YouTube or Samsung VR.

Compatible with a selection of third-party accessories and mounts, the Gear 360 can be used on Samsung flagship devices including the newly-released Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ -- as well as the iPhone 7, 6s and iPhone SE, in addition to Windows and Mac computers.

Look for it to debut at Samsung retailers soon.
