Xiaomi is making everyone feel present at this year’s MWC (Mobile World Congress). As we all watched the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 Series, the company startled everyone by portraying its newest smart eyeglass, the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition.
The Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass, as they are known, is a pair of wireless smart glasses in concept. They can connect to your phone or to other devices and provide an immersive AR experience—free of wires and dongles. Because of Xiaomi’s AR glass’s inadequate built-in storage, the device has to be connected to a host device to function. Like a wireless earphone.
Both the smart glasses have two micro OLED screens as well as a free-shaped light-instructing prism module that sends content to your eyes. They can produce up to 1,200 nits of peak brightness per glass. Xiaomi also added three camera modules for mapping out the user’s surroundings. This also helps with a better experience.
The smart AR glass features electrochromic lenses with an engrossed mode for complete immersion in virtual space and a transparent mode for viewing matters/objects in the user’s peripheral view. The headset weighs around 126g and is made of a magnesium-lithium alloy structure with carbon fiber elements.
Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass, like the Meta Quest Pro, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 1 platform and supports the Snapdragon Spaces XR developer platform. Moreover, the tech giant has created its own AR gesture commands with spatial detection for more precise commands and operations.
Meanwhile, the headset’s latency is as low as 50ms when paired with a smartphone, which Xiaomi claims are comparable to the latency of a traditional AR/VR headset connected via cable.
