    Huawei plans to introduce ‘augmented reality’ glasses in a couple of years

    Huawei is reportedly working on augmented reality (AR) smart glasses which could debut in the next couple of years, potentially putting it in a race against Apple, which is reportedly working on a similar product of its own. 1

    Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real-world are “augmented” by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory, and olfactory. 2

    The Chinese technology giant already has augmented reality apps on its latest Mate 20 Pro smartphone. But Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, told CNBC in an exclusive interview that AR glasses are in the works which could take the experience to the next level. These would be wearable spectacles that allow people to experience AR.

    “With this AR, you can have AR glasses working with phone, maybe you can watch more of a large area,” Yu said. “In the beginning, you may feel AR … is nothing. But in the future you will see more and more the value of that,” he added.

    Yu said the company will bring more augmented reality experiences to the smartphone first, so users become accustomed to it before the company releases the glasses.

    “The next one to two years I think the industry will commercialize, even for Huawei. We will bring a better user experience product,” Yu said.

    Previously Google had its Google Glass and Microsoft had its own AR Glass lineup named as Microsoft HoloLens that used Augmented Reality to do various kinds of stuff. But those gadgets were pretty high priced. It is worth to see how Huawei can bring AR Technology to masses at an affordable price point.
