2017 Samsung Gear 360 price revealed: €249 / $249; pre-order now available in Germany


Samsung's German site has revealed the price and availability for the 2017 Gear 360 and has made it available for preorder.



The site shows that the price will be €249, which is on the lower end of the range I expected.  This likely means the US price will be $249.  At this price, it is the most affordable 4k 360 camera on the market today.  You can preorder it here.  The link appears to be working.


Regarding the availability, the Samsung Germany site said it would be shipped on April 18, 2017, which is a bit sooner than expected.


Strangely, if you translate the page, it will show a shipping date of June 18, 2017, which seems more likely.  Samsung said the S8 and Gear VR would be available April 21 but did not say the same for the Gear 360, saying only that it would be available Spring 2017, thus implying that it could be later than April 21.   But if you do preorder, it does promise shipping on April 18, 2017.

  1. Hello Mic!
    It is strange that 18.04 is translated as 6/18. It looks like the actual date is 4/18/2017 indeed :)
    Best regards,

  4. With the last 360 I pre-ordered with mobile fun but in fact I could buy off samsung site before they actually got stock.... They also increased their original price (at time they said £299 then put it up to £349.... just wonder if same may happen if that is their strategy (I can guess Samsung won't prioritise stock to a discounter?) However I could be wring so good luck.
