Samsung explains how the Gear 360 is composed


Samsung wants us to know the amount of hard work they put in to create the Gear 360 camera. In the company’s product newsroom, they explained the steps needed to assemble the Gear 360 and how much goes into making the small device.

Samsung split the Gear 360 into about nine layers and numbered them to help explain the production process. It starts with the rear casing, which provides the base for the camera. It’s sturdy and compact providing the device with an IP53 rating for dust and splash resistance. The front half contains several sensors that help the Gear 360 operate.

On top of the front casing goes the G1 lens or Glass 1 lens. Samsung says this glass makes the camera good for both indoor and outdoor use. Assembled along the sides of the front casing is the battery case and slide key. Rounding out the front is the front case, which allows the tripod hole to stay in place at the very bottom.

Going back to the front casing, it houses the front bracket giving it a protective shell. The most important part in that of the camera module is then screwed through the inside of both layers pointing out the front. This part also houses the WiFi antenna. Next comes the main board, which is connected to the Cu Plate. Following that is the battery, which is put inside the battery chamber to grip onto the remainder of the camera. The back consists of the NFC antenna, as well as the speaker and rear camera module which connect to the rear bracket. The rear bracket is then covered with the rear casing, which is the final part. Check out all the parts, what they look like, and how they are conjoined in the featured image above.
