Yi announces its 360 VR camera capable of 5.7K resolution

If the Yi Halo is for the pros, this one is aimed at casual users wanted to capture their own 360-degree content.

The Yi 360VR could be your next 360-degree camera capable of shooting 360-degree videos at 30 frames per second in 5.7K resolution. That’s slightly better in terms of resolution compared to the recently announced GoPro Fusion.

The camera uses a pair of 220-degree lenses, two 12-megapixel Sony IMX377 sensors, and an Ambarella processing chip to stitch the footage together. It can also do live streaming in 2.5K footage at 30fps over Wi-Fi but with just about an hour of battery life.

Interestingly, the camera is coming to the US first before China. It’s priced at $399 or about Php19,900 before taxes.
