Owners in India are reporting an EMUI update that activated a latent gyroscope.
This would be exciting except we don’t yet know if the variant sold in the U.S. — starting tomorrow, January 25th — will also include a gyroscope.
If it does, this would be a great cheap phone for exploring Google Cardboard VR — and especially to view all of the SBS 3D available on YouTube. It has a 5.93″ screen at 1080 x 2160 for a PPI of ~407. To compare, the iPhone 8 Plus screen is ~401 and the iPhone X is ~458 PPI.
See videos after the break.
BONUS! It’s already been established that the 7X has USB OTG!
