Xiaomi AR Glasses: Are you going to wear AR glasses wherever you travel in the near future? That’s debatable. However, manufacturers continue to develop these products. Xiaomi’s AR Glass Discovery Edition revealed at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona is a second attempt to understand the boundaries. The cameras-equipped AR glasses look like mysterious AR glasses and have the ability to alter their lens as needed.
Qualcomm introduced a new AR glasses-focused chipset in the year 2000 that was targeted at making smaller smart glasses connect wirelessly with phones in close proximity. Qualcomm’s technology is now available for companies with an existing relationship between glasses and phones in place, as both phones and glasses must be certified by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Spaces software to function.

Xiaomi AR Glasses Add Micro OLED and Dimming Lenses
Xiaomi’s glasses resemble futuristic visors and utilize Micro OLED displays, promising the “retina-level” resolution level at 58 pixels per degree (this determines how many pixels are in the display, rather than the overall resolution). One thing that they have added is lenses that alter opacity to make them darker to allow for more AR viewing. This is like Magic Leap 2. Magic Leap 2. The glasses employ hand tracking and gesture tracking to provide control, using external cameras in the glasses and sensors, however, they are also able to be used in conjunction with a mobile phone and make use of the phone’s touchscreen as a trackpad, too.
Google, Samsung, and Qualcomm have already announced an upcoming XR partnership that could result in glasses and phones that integrate better to the Google Android platform. Apple’s anticipated mixed-reality headset may be similar to the iPhone in the future. Xiaomi’s glasses are a bit early to the party in this regard.
Qualcomm has been driving the evolution between smartphones and glasses as of now and it’s being done on a carrier-by-carrier and device-by-device basis. In some ways, it’s like the beginnings of smartwatches prior to when Google and Apple joined the fray. In the near future, we’ll likely remain a gradual change, and it’s unclear which apps can be used with the glasses, or how they’ll look to your eyes or face. They do have prescription lenses, however, I’ve encountered them not being the best in my eyes as I’ve tested these before.
