The CEO of the Chinese company claims that, within two years, all major brands will offer a version of AR glasses, his own included.
In an interview he gave Richard Yu to CNBC, the CEO of Huawei he has confirmed the development of a product for augmented reality by the company that he presides over, and augurs a wide catalog of AR glasses for the year 2020, to which all the major brands of the mobile market would contribute, land in which it has just surpassed Apple in the number of devices sold.
“With this technology, you can connect your glasses to your phone and not lose detail around you,” says Richard Yu. “At first they may seem irrelevant, but gradually their true potential will be appreciated. In the next two years, the entire industry will market some [gafas de RA]including Huawei.”
Huawei recently launched Google’s ARCore compatible Mate 20 smartphone series, thus starting its path before launching into competition with its rivals, such as Samsung, which has already introduced an experimental viewer, and Apple itself, which may also be preparing a similar product for 2020.
The company is also preparing a new version of its VR viewer, which would connect via USB-C to our mobile device, mounting own screens instead of using the one of a phone.
