A relatively unknown company from China is trying to capitalize on the virtual reality race with its new device, which is so far, the first smartphone to have a built-in 360-degree camera.

This was after Chinese company ProTruly officially introduced their Darling smartphone during the 2017 Mobile World Congress.

According to The Verge, the Darling’s main standout feature is its 360-degree camera that can take high quality photos and videos with its back-to-back 13 megapixel cameras.

This technology seems to be compatible with Facebook and YouTube’s 360-degree platform that may allow users to directly upload media shot by the Darling.

The only backside consumers might initially notice with this phone are the protruding camera bumps on both sides caused by a lack of space to fit in the 360-degree tech into a slim smartphone.

But aside from this, the Darling has decent specs with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, a 64GB internal storage all powered by a MediaTek processor running on a fairly large 3,560mAh battery pack.

ProTruly has yet to reveal a release date but the standard version is priced at $500 (roughly P25,000) while a blinged out version with gold trimmings and four diamond studs reportedly go for up to $1,300 (roughly P65,000).

Here’s a short hands-on video review of the Darling:
