Tipster shows Samsung’s AR glasses in a concept video; Here’s how they look like
Although the tipster does mention it as a ‘R&D Vision Concept’, it’s past leaks have got some credibility so there’s no reason for us to not believe these renders too.
In the past, some of the tech giants including Apple, Facebook and Microsoft have given us enough evidence to believe that augmented reality is the future and they are working on AR glasses, all of which might arrive at some point in future. However, joining the gang now is another tech giant - Samsung. The company has not confirmed anything about it but a tipster WalkingCat seems to have dropped some nuggets on the firm’s upcoming AR Glass.
The video links posted on Twitter by the account are not accessible for now but 9to5Google has managed to capture some images, showing the Samsung ‘Glasses Lite’. Although the tipster does mention it as a ‘R&D Vision Concept’, it’s past leaks have got some credibility so there’s no reason for us to not believe these renders too.
The first video showing the ‘Samsung Glasses Lite’ has a regular glass with thick frames on the sides and indicates that there could be a transparent screen on which the information will be shown. However, it’s not clear how Samsung plans to show it though. The video also shows the use case of the glass with the first one being playing a car game with a handset docked in a controller accessory. It also showed how one can use the Galaxy Watch to switch to a different content. What’s more is that the person is seen moving to a ‘Dex Display’ and uses a physical keyboard with a floating desktop appearing in front of him when seen via the glass. In the video, we also see the glasses featuring ‘Sunglasses Mode’ that hides the AR display and tint’s the shade.
The second video is about Samsung’s “Next Wearable Computing” vision. The platform is aimed at those who want to be productive while on the move. It is said to include AR Office, which includes a projected keyboard that only the wearer can see, Holo Call feature that has full body virtual guests and room-scale AR simulation. In the end, the video also mentions ‘Samsung AR Glasses’.
Obviously, since there is no confirmation, we are far from even seeing these wearable devices out in the open. But looking at the realistic Samsung-style videos, company’s bold moves in introducing new form factors and products, and the leaks made by the tipster in the past, it does make us think that the company might just be onto something.
