To deliver a seamless AR experience, the AR Smart glasses offer dual micro-OLED binocular display, frame rates up to 90Hz and a no-motion-blur feature

On Friday, Qualcomm, the US-based chipmaker unveiled its own wireless AR Smart glasses powered by the Snapdragon XR2 Platform.

Now, snapdragon XR2 Platform packs powerful performance into a slim, smaller AR Smart glass form factor.

The AR reference design hardware, according to the company is developed by acoustic component company Goertek which has a more ergonomically-balanced weight distribution for increased comfort and a 40 per cent thinner profile.

To deliver a seamless AR experience, the AR Smart glasses offer dual micro-OLED binocular display, frame rates up to 90Hz and a no-motion-blur feature.

Enabling six-degrees of freedom (6DoF) head tracking and hand tracking with gesture recognition, it comes with dual monochrome cameras and one RGB camera on the smart viewer.

The company said in a blog post that the reference design enables a wireless split processing architecture to distribute computing workloads between the smartphone and the AR Smart glass.

Allowing users to receive the fastest commercially available speeds and increased range, it offers Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth connectivity.

“FastConnect XR Software Suite system allows better control and preferential channel access for XR traffic to improve M2R2P (motion-to-render-to-photon) latency, reduce jitter, and avoid unwanted interference,” said the company.

Without impacting latency performance for longer, sustained XR experiences, it also includes purpose-built power modes for low power operation.
