This might be Huawei's first 360-degree camera, but it's definitely not Insta360's first. It has other phone clip-ons that plug into a phone's micro-USB port on the market for both iOS and Android devices. Huawei's could have a similar quality and pricing, so expect to shell out roughly $200 or more. We're bound to learn the details in the near future: the company says the accessory will be available "soon" around the world.
Update: An Honor spokesperson confirmed to Engadget that the 360 camera will only be available in China. The company says it's using the device to "explore" other product categories and get feedback from users. As of right now, it has no plans for an international release for the 360-degree VR camera. Here's the full explanation:
"The 360-degree VR camera for Honor V9 mentioned by several international media recently is one of many initiatives Honor takes to explore future technology and test market feedback. The product was developed in partnership, and it is only available in China. We do not have plans to launch the product in international markets."
