At the inaugural Oppo Inno Day in Shenzen (China), Oppo has announced that it is working on an augmented reality glasses. It said that the AR hardware is currently under the prototyping phase which it even demonstrated on the stage. It has set eyes on 2020 for an official launch of the product.
Oppo's AR glasses look like other AR glasses that we have seen from other tech companies including Magic Leap. It is said to feature four cameras that include two fisheye sensors, one HD sensor, and one Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor. Oppo says that these sensors will allow the headset to view its surroundings from different angles and layers for delivering an immersive experience.
The team has focused on the audio experience as well. AR glasses are said to feature 3D surround sound that will help make the augmented reality experience feel as realistic as possible. It is further working on its own AR content including games and services that are likely to become official alongside the device.
Oppo is also set to make use of the upcoming 5G connectivity wave for the benefits of its AR glasses. It has kept all other details under wraps which should be revealed as we will get closer to an official unveiling. The pricing will surely be one of the important aspects as AR glasses are usually on the expensive side.
