YI Technology has updated its website to state that it has upgraded the YI 360 VR livestream resolution to 4K.
When the YI 360 VR was announced as a development project earlier this year its streaming resolution was listed as 2.5K. However, YI’s product page for the 360 VR now says: “Finally live stream it all, in 4K”.
As well as 4K livestreaming, the YI 360 VR will also offer 4K in-camera stitched videos and 5.7K still photos and videos (with desktop stitching).
360 Rumors has also spoken to a beta tester of the YI 360 VR who dispels the rumour that the camera will have image stabilisation.
The YI 360 VR price tag will be $399, which has excited many 360 camera enthusiasts, as this is far cheaper than many other cameras, like the Garmin VIRB 360, that offer the same resolution.
A YI 360 VR release date is widely expected in September 2017.
