It comes equipped with Wi-Fi, the ability to make voice calls like on a smartphone, and two large fisheye lenses (front and the back) that capture images which are then stitched together through the software inside.According to Acer’s execs on stage, you will be able to share these images on social media networks and YouTube using an Android app, however, the camera will be available within a year from now.
Acer Holo 360 comes with physical buttons (volume rocker, power button) and there is also a dedicated physical Camera button, which allows one to control the camera not only through the touch screen, but also using physical buttons.
Acer hasn’t revealed the price tag of Holo 360, but, since it has Cellular capabilities, it should cost around 250 to 350 euros when it will go on sale “within a year“.
