Qualcomm, a US-based hardware company, on Friday revealed its very own AR glasses that function wirelessly. The new glasses get power from the Snapdragon XR2 Platform. The XR2 platform has been successful in delivering a robust and high octane performance within a slimmer form factor as seen in the thin AR glasses.
As Qualcomm revealed, the reference design hardware for its AR glasses has been made by Goertek, which is an acoustic designing factory. The glasses have a thinner profile, less than 40% of the previous glasses. They are also ergonomic, with a balanced distribution of weight for better comfort.
These glasses offer dual micro OLED displays, akin to a binocular, and frame refresh rates are at 90 Hz. There is also a blur feature that can give you a truly seamless experience when you wear them.
These glasses have one RGB camera and dual monochrome cameras located on the smart viewer. This gives the glasses 6 degrees of freedom, which is essential for hand and head tracking with the help of gestures from the user.
Qualcomm released a blog where it said that the reference design of the glasses enables wireless split processing architectures that help distribute the given workload between the AR glass and your smartphone. It also has on offer Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi 6/6E that enable you to receive the very rapid available speeds on a commercial level while also giving the user an increased range of operation.
To conclude, these AR glasses have different power modes: this gives the glasses options to function in low power mode, while at the same time enjoying long AR experiences without the battery giving up.
