Samsung 360 Round has 17 lenses and captures 4K 3D streaming video

But with eye watering specs comes an eye watering price. The single vertical lens on the Samsung 360 Round is capable of live streaming 4K UHD 3D video and spatial audio.

As its name suggests, the Samsung 360 Round can shoot 360-degree videos.

The South Korean conglomerate has, of course, already got a 360 degree camera on the market, the Samsung Gear 360 - not to be confused with its smartphone-based VR head mounted display (HMD) the Samsung Gear VR.

Ronald Koeman believes he has the backing of the Everton board
The Toffees manager admitted his side need to kickstart their campaign with a confidence-boosting victory against their toughest Europa League Group E opponents Lyon at Goodison Park tonight.

You can find out more details about the new 360 Round camera from Samsung over at the company's website at the link below. The Roomba-sized device is only captures the content - it does not stitch it in-camera. The 360 Round also supports LAN connection to the internet and it uses USB Type-C. The Round is IP65 water resistant, so you can use it in the rain, and its unibody design is meant to keep you shooting for "hours" without the need for a noisy cooling fan. Experts argue that a post-processing rig requires a Core i7-6700K, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics and 16GB of RAM. Samsung said the camera will be on sale sometime in October - but no dates has been shared.

Today's reveal as part of the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC 2017) in San Francisco, California introduced the world to a new camera and one not using the "Gear" brand. On the other hand, livestreaming and broadcast ask for at least a 10-core i7-6950X chip, 32 GB of RAM, and two - yes, two - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs.
