Xiaomi has decided to show off its new wireless AR glasses at MWC 2023, following the Xiaomi 13 series launch. The name of the product is Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition. These do look quite futuristic, but there are no cables necessary.
Xiaomi surprised many people with its new wireless AR glasses at MWC 2023
These glasses pair to a phone quickly, all you need to do is use NFC. They offer a low latency wireless connection, and a “retina-level” near-eye ultra-high resolution display. On top of that, electrochromic lenses are included for both transparent and immersed modes.
Alright, those were the highlights, let’s get into specifics now. The low latency connection I mentioned is as low as 50 ms. You can pair them with your phone with a single tap, no need to mess around the settings.
Xiaomi used both magnesium-lithium alloy & carbon fiber to keep the weight down
They are made out of magnesium-lithium alloy, partially, while Xiaomi also used carbon fiber materials here. On top of that, the company developed a silicon-oxygen anode battery, that’s smaller than the regular lithium-ion battery. Thanks to that, these glasses weigh only 126 grams.
The displays used here are of a micro OLED variety, and it has a 1,200 nits peak eye-catching brightness. These are fullHD+ displays, by the way.
‘Xiaomi AR Gesture Control’ is used to control digital objects in a physical space
Xiaomi also developed “Xiaomi AR Gesture Control” for precise spatial detection. This allows you to place virtual objects anywhere you want, basically, inside the physical space.
Thanks to gestures, you can drag and zoom as you please, while there’s also a gesture for flipping pages. Those are just some examples, more gestures are supported.
You will notice that front-facing cameras are also included here, there are three of them. They’re there to map out the environment in front of you. The Snapdragon XR2 Gen 1 processor fuels these glasses, in case you were wondering.
That being said, the company did not speak about the availability, or anything like that. This does seem more like a working concept at the moment, but who knows. We’ll see what happens next.
