What’s inside the Samsung Gear 360? Samsung wants to show you

SamsungLogo
Samsung’s upcoming 360-degree camera is still slowly launching around the world. The camera will very likely be torn asunder by the good folk over at iFixit or similar sites when it launches, but Samsung has beaten them to the punch showing us exactly what is inside the camera.

The device has many components, but basically falls into 9 components including the portal turret looking housing that keeps all the internal components safe inside. There’s obviously a lot in there, which Samsung laboriously goes into great detail about on their site, but the component lists breaks down like this:

  1. Case
  2. G1 Lens (Glass 1 Lens)
  3. Front Bracket
  4. Camera Module
  5. Cu Plate
  6. Main Board
  7. Battery Chamber & Battery
  8. Camera Lens
  9. Rear Bracket
