OPPO launches the Air Glass, an AR device

OPPO launched a new generation of smart glasses-Air Glass, an AR product, which will be launched early next year. This product introduces many new features, such as support for four interactive modes: touch, voice, gesture, and head movement control. OPPO also pointed out that this is an “assisted reality” product, not augmented reality, which means that it can only project 2D information into your field of view, instead of superimposing 3D objects into the real world. This is a bit like Google Glass.

In terms of product design, OPPO Air Glass adopts a monocular split shape, which can be fitted with optical lenses, and the product weight is only 30g. It is also equipped with two designs of silver half-frame and black full-frame and can be fitted with optical lenses. In addition, OPPO Air Glass is also equipped with a Micro LED display with a peak brightness of 3 million nits, but the actual average brightness is 1400 nits.

In terms of core performance, OPPO Air Glass is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 wearable device platform, which supports dual-mic call noise reduction and low-power Bluetooth. Users can interact through touch, voice, hand tracking and head tracking operations. For other functions, this “assisted reality” device can provide notification reminders, navigation, speech inscriptions, real-time translation, and other functions. It can also be used in conjunction with OPPO’s mobile phones and smart device products.

In other respects, OPPO Air Glass also has good battery life. It can be used continuously for 3 hours and has a standby battery life of 40 hours. As for the time to market, OPPO said that these smart glasses will be “limited sale” in the first quarter of 2022, and will only be sold in China at the beginning.
