Thanks for your interest and please follow this link to the English
pre-order site: http://yun.twirlingvr.com/index.php/home/Lite/lite-en
And for your questions:
The Lite works directly with all Android phone with USB port. For
the type-c port, we will provide a converter.
The original recording format is A-format, but we will provide a
phone App that allows you to export file in SN3D format.
Except for the phone App I mentioned above, we will also provide a
PC software( Twirling720 Studio) which is a more professional tool
for users to convert the recording file into multiple formats,
enable noise suppression, change the sound field, preview sound/360
video file by dragging the mouse and so on.
We will carry out a series tests in the before sending it to the
customers, any device with any imperfections will not be allowed to

Please let me know if there are any more problems or any confusions.
