Vivo has announced its first AR glasses at MWC Shanghai. The product prototype is simply called Vivo AR Glass and is a relatively lightweight headset with two transparent displays and 6DoF tracking. It connects with a cable to Vivo & # 39; s so far unnamed 5G smartphone, which is also being demonstrated this week.
Vivo says that the AR glass now has five use cases: gaming, office work, "5G theater", face recognition and object recognition. A promotional video posted by the company shows users who play games at the dining table, hear the name of a friend and sit on their couch surrounded by virtual jellyfish.
The Vivo AR Glass has no price or release information yet, but the 5G phone is set for release in the third quarter of this year. Vivo estimates the announcement as part of a shift to a new brand strategy, in which products such as smartwatches, AR glasses and headphones are offered alongside the 5G smartphones.
