Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone brand, announced its new AR smart glasses today in China. The camera ‘Xiaomi Mijia Glasses Camera’ uses Augmented Reality technology.
These glasses are not the casual wear glasses that we carry everywhere, in fact these glasses stand out because of the camera sensors on one side and the display elements on the other.
Xiaomi claims that these smart glasses are supposed to combine intelligent images and augmented reality technology. These glasses are believed to allow users to express their creative knowledge.
These AR glasses are said to weigh 100 grams and include camera functions. These glasses are believed to house a 50-megapixel main camera on the left side and a second 8-megapixel periscopic telephoto lens. Only the secondary camera offers OIS.
The Xiaomi AR Smart Glasses come with a periscope telephoto lens that has f/3.4 aperture and offers 5x optical zoom and 15x digital zoom.
To achieve maximum brightness, the smart glasses are equipped with a Sony micro OLED screen with a brightness of 3,000 nits. Interestingly, Xiaomi also uses free-form optical technology with an input brightness of 1800 nits with a Sony display with a pixel density of 3,281 ppi and a contrast ratio of 10,000:1.
Xiaomi’s AR Smart Glasses are expected to feature a Snapdragon 8 chipset. With 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, the device will also feature dual-band WiFi. It will also include Bluetooth 5.0 and a 1,020mAh backup battery.
With 10W fast magnetic charging, these smart glasses will likely take 30 minutes to charge from 0 to 80 percent, supporting a total of 100 minutes of continuous recording.
Notably, these glasses are priced at Rs. 29,044 as they are part of a crowdfunding campaign. Originally, the regular price of this device came to Rs. 31,320.
These glasses are currently only available in China. Consumers around the world are interested to know whether Xiaomi will sell it outside their territory or not.
Xiaomi introduced its first smart glasses last year. These glasses came with support for live translation and navigation.
