Samsung has finally confirmed pricing and U.S. availability for its refreshed Gear 360 camera.

The second generation device will go on sale on May 25 in-store and online through Samsung, Amazon, Best Buy, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular.

The Korean tech titan announced the first version of the Gear 360 in February of last year, though the camera didn’t arrive on the market until some months later. Then in March of this year Samsung unveiled the all-new Gear 360 camera, which sports a slimmer design, 4K, and live video support.

At $229, the new version of the camera handily beats the $350 price tag for the original Gear 360, which should go some way toward enticing consumers who are wondering whether they actually need a 360-degree camera in their lives.

And, as an added bonus, those who buy one of Samsung’s new flagship phones — the S8 or S8+ — between May 25 and June 19 can procure a Gear 360 camera for just $49, which really is a pretty good value.
