During a Facebook Live video this morning, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced two new Portal video-calling devices i.e. the 10-inch portable Portal Go, and the next-gen Portal+ with a 14-inch HD tilting display.
Portal Go adds portability to Portal smart video calling for the first time. Designed to let conversations move from room to room, it features an integrated handle and a long-lasting battery. It includes a 12MP Smart Camera with an ultrawide field of view for video calls and doubles as a portable speaker.
Portal Go ($299 CAD) will begin shipping October 19, with pre-orders now open at portal.facebook.com.
Portal+ is Facebook’s new 14-inch Portal that also features a 12MP Smart Camera with an ultrawide field of view. Its stereo speakers deliver high-fidelity sound for crystal-clear audio.
It also serves as a perfect dedicated screen for work calls, freeing up your computer to take notes, view a presentation, or multitask. Thanks to the 14-inch screen, you can see up to 25 people on a Zoom call at one time.
Portal Go ($519 CAD) will begin shipping October 19, with pre-orders now live at portal.facebook.com.
