Several days after Facebook and Ray-Ban revealed their somewhat pedestrian smart glasses, Xiaomi began a pair of its smart glasses, which are quite a little more appealing.
The Xiaomi Smart Glasses resemble moderately much like natural shades and weigh a generous 51 grams.
- Xiaomi Smart Glasses carry a MicroLED display built into the right lens.
- A 5-megapixel camera on the front.
- A Quad-core ARM processor, a battery, a touchpad on the frame.
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The glasses are running Android, though Xiaomi doesn’t state which version.
The various exciting part is the display. MicroLED is a display related to OLED, but with a greater pixel density, longer lifespan, and a simplistic structure, which Xiaomi commands provides more natural integration into the glasses.
The display isn’t anything too elaborate, as it requires to provide light to pass by so you can see through the glasses — it’s a monochrome display that can dispense you with things like a clock, texts, and navigation instructions.
Also impressive is how Xiaomi puts this device. The company tells the Smart Glasses are independent of your smartphone, instead of just an accessory.
You can use them to present and receive calls, take photos, read texts, get translations and more, all externally, using your smartphone at all. To do all this, the glasses have some Xiaomi AI smarts built-in as well.
Xiaomi’s Smart Glasses will surely draw similarities with Google Glass, which also had a built-in display but were eventually dismissed as a mass-market product, with Google instead turning them into a tool for specialists.
We’ll notice if Xiaomi’s version can withdraw that fate, but now, Xiaomi’s putting its Smart Glasses. As a result, anyone can use it.
There’s no information on price or availability; whenever Xiaomi updates about the smart glasses, we will update the article or publish a new article with an update.
