YouTube will soon launch a new feature that allows viewers to be fully engulfed in full 360 degree viewing. The company has been on a roll with the change from Flash to HTML5 and the introduction of multi-angled viewing. Now it is expanding on the 360 degree video platform with supported cameras and video formats.
This particular product was originally believed to be Lenovo’s next flagship smartphone but when it was officially announced at Mobile World Congress last week, the rumour turns out to be false. Not only that, it also has a different purpose altogether as the new Lenovo Vibe Shot is the company’s attempt to deliver the “ultimate smartphone for photos”.
MWC 2015 officially closed its doors on 5 March, but coverage from the industry’s largest yearly event is likely to continue into the next week. With over 93,000 attendees this year, MWC 2015 proved to be the most successful MWC yet. But for those on the other side of the world, it may be a little difficult to picture just how massive this event really is.
Back at CES 2015 earlier this year, ASUS has not only unveiled Zenfone 2 for the first time to the world but has also brought forward the Zenfone Zoom. Designed for photography in mind, the new device has an uncanny resemblance to the famed Nokia Lumia 1020 which some called as the gold standard in mobile photography due to its 41-megapixels PureView camera.
Xiaomi really brought its A-game to the world of action videography with the release of the Yi Action Camera. Now, the company has released official photo and video samples taken with the sports camera that boasts on powerful hardware while still being able to take a swim with the fishes, and not to mention keeping its retail price low.
Samsung’s last flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4, was the closest to match the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as the best all-round smartphone camera. Now that we know it has fitted the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge with the Sony IMX 240 camera sensor, how well does it perform this time?
While the numbers surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S6’s camera sound impressive enough, I remember this time last year when Samsung was equally vocal about the Galaxy S5’s camera. As it turns out, one of the best features from the Galaxy Note 4 has been transferred into the Galaxy S6.
Xiaomi previously teased its fans with an image of a matchbox, and now the mysterious device has come out of the shadows. Bearing the name the Yi Action Camera, the company’s latest product is a GoPro-style action camera which features similar specifications but at a fraction of the price.
Many thought that this device would be the Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro, but apparently it is the Lenovo Vibe Shot. The company has unveiled its latest smartphone at MWC, a 16MP camera smartphone that features optical image stabilisation and a BSI sensor. It really does look more like a camera than a smartphone.
Xiaomi just updated its official Chinese website and a new teaser has cropped up. It’s a simple picture which shows a matchbox and a “Learn More” dialogue box. We think it’s a portable camera that is likely to be a GoPro rival because the company mentioned that the device will help us view life in different angles and record life’s precious moments.
Earlier this month, Samsung has introduced a brand new camera under its NX series called NX500 which apparently mixes together the capability of its flagship NX1 camera with consumer-level features. It is scheduled to be released throughout the world starting this March and true enough, the camera has made its way to SIRIM’s database.
