If you're one of the lucky few (OK, more than a few) who already have a Samsung Gear 360 camera, you've got a firmware update waiting for you.
The new firmware (C200GLU0APE4 is what my imported Gear 360 is now on) includes the following:
- Time lapse menu added to onboard camera settings (set video resolution)
- Front/rear lens adjustment for optimized color matching from each lens input
- Image quality improvement
Those last two are particularly important, as color matching between the two images is what helps the stitch line disappear. Plus, the all-encompassing "image quality improvement."
In addition, there's also an update available for the Gear 360 Manager app. Samsung didn't give a changelog, but you'll be taken from v1.0 to 1.04. That app is only available (in the U.S., anyway) in Samsung's own app store.
The Samsung Gear 360 is expected to be available in the United States sometime this summer.

Did you pre-order the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra?
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a seriously impressive device, and as of right now, pre-orders are open. Have you splurged for the phone yet?
If you're a true Note fan, the Note 20 Ultra is the only phone to get
The little differences may seem superfluous to the general smartphone buyer, but they mean a lot to someone who's historically been attracted to the Galaxy Note. Samsung itself reiterates constantly that the Note line is for the "power users" and the "Galaxy fans" — the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the only model that still embodies that mindset.
The Google Pixel 4 is the best phone for taking photos, period
If you want the best Android camera, you should go with the Google Pixel 4. There are many great options that get close, though.
