Huawei launches “Vision Glass” smart glasses device

At the 2022 Global Virtual Reality Industry Conference on November 12, He Gang, COO of Huawei Consumer BG, unveiled Huawei’s first smart glasses product, “Vision Glass”. This product was opened for pre-order on November 14 and will officially launch next month.

This pair of glasses adopts a MicroOLED screen, equivalent to a 120-inch virtual giant screen, supports binocular 1080p Full HD resolution, 480 nit brightness when wearing, and can reach 90% DCI-P3 color gamut . In addition, it is equipped with ultra-thin smart speakers and has passed TÜV Rheinland low blue light eye protection certification.

Like ordinary sunglasses, these glasses have a bendable temple, which is convenient for consumers to wear. The nose pads are designed with air capsules supporting three-speed adjustment, which makes them more comfortable. The glasses support diopter adjustment from 0 to 500 degrees for nearsighted users, and diopter adjustment can be achieved just by turning a knob. In addition, the speakers adopt the reverse sound field design, so that consumers can enjoy the experience without affecting others.

It should be mentioned that Huawei’s Vision Glass has no on-device processor or storage, which means it does not support external mobile hard drive and should be used with mobile phones, tablets or PCs, and the battery life is similar to that of mobile devices.

He Gang said at the event that AR/VR usage scenarios have changed from videos and games to scenarios such as culture, travel, arts and education, gradually covering all aspects of life. Behind this, not only the key technologies have been constantly forged, but also the technical standards for the production of AR/VR content are maturing and the ecology is completely open. He called for the development of AR/VR to work with industry to accelerate the construction of overall technical architecture and interface specifications, reduce development and interconnect costs, and resolve common industry problems.

Promoting the development of the virtual reality industry, He Gang introduced Huawei’s measures. In terms of map experience, for example, Huawei can build an ultra-thin digital world in 30 minutes with 2,500 maps.

In the optical field, Huawei has developed a small screen supporting 4000 PPI and started its mass production, which greatly supports AR/VR display effects. In terms of rendering calculations on devices, Huawei chips have been able to support 8K 60 frames highlight processing capability, and they will support 12K 90 frames in the future. In terms of network speed, 5.5G wireless networks and home networks can bring high-speed experience, while its VR glasses weigh less than 170 grams and its AR glasses weigh less than 80 grams.
