Samsung’s new Gear 360 camera costs $229 and goes on sale in the U.S. on May 25


Samsung has finally confirmed the pricing and U.S. availability for its refreshed Gear 360 camera.

The second generation device will go on sale on May 25 in-store and online through Samsung, Amazon, BestBuy, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular.

The Korean tech titan announced the first version of the Gear 360 in February last year, though it didn’t arrive on the market for some months later. Then in March this year, Samsung unveiled the all-new Gear 360 camera sporting a slimmer design, 4K, and live video support.

At $229, the new version of the camera is markedly cheaper than the $350 price tag of the original Gear 360, which should go some way toward convincing consumers wondering whether they actually need a 360-degree camera in their lives.

And as an added bonus, those who buy one of Samsung’s new flagship phones, the S8 or S8+, between May 25 and June 19, can procure a Gear 360 camera for just $49 — which really is pretty good value for money.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
