To revive interest in smartphones, Samsung and LG are improving their cameras and embracing the nascent world of virtual reality.Both will work with the $100 Gear VR headset that Samsung released last fall. And Samsung will now make a 360-degree camera for everyday folks to capture and share VR images.LG will also have its own VR headset and 360-degree camera, while the main camera on its upcoming G5 smartphone will have two lenses – one for standard shots, and another with a wider angle to capture more of what's in front of you.Phone-makers used to guarantee upgrades by making phones bigger and bigger – but phones can't get much bigger for one-handed use.That's been particularly important for Samsung, as its chief rival, Apple, largely matched Samsung on size, while boosting the iPhone camera's resolution to 12 megapixels from 8 .In a few months, Samsung will start selling its Gear 360 camera, a device with front and back lenses to stitch together 360-degree videos for VR devices and apps. Samsung's phones will see improvements, too, particularly in the camera.LG, meanwhile, designed the LG 360 VR headset to work with an LG smartphone that's attached by a cable.
