Samsung has revealed the Gear 360, a camera that lets you create 360-degree videos and photos.

The camera leverages the best of the Samsung Galaxy experience so users can become the creator of their own virtual reality content to enjoy through Gear VR.

Samsung Gear 360 is equipped with dual fisheye lenses, which both have 15MP image sensors.

This gives you the ability to capture high-resolution (3,840×1,920) 360-degree video and 30MP still images, said Samsung.

You can also shoot 180-degree wide-angle video and images by only using one side of the camera.

It also offers Bright Lens F2.0, which Samsung said can create high-resolution images in low-light conditions.

The Gear 360 is compatible with select Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6.

Gear 360 will be available starting Q2 2016 in select countries.
