Leaked idea video including 2 Samsung AR gadgets has actually emerged. Although just principles and not functioning items as such, it’s clear the Korean tech giant is preparing to take on companies like Facebook and Apple as they inch ever closer to launching customer AR headsets.
Known leaker ‘WalkingCat‘ released two videos revealing a set of separate gadget principles. WalkingCat was also associated with dripping pictures of Oculus Quest 2 prior to it was introduced, and Lenovo’s newest ThinkReality AR glasses for enterprise prior to it was revealed at CES this year.
This very first device seems smartglasses for casual media usage, dubbed ‘Samsung Glasses Lite’. The video (seen below) flaunts what we ‘d get out of a set of 3DOF-tracked smartglasses, particularly the capability to view traditional flatsceen media through a virtual display.
It’s essential to keep in mind that these devices, as we see them in the videos, are really most likely simply ideas on paper at this point.
The ‘Samsung AR Glasses’ don’t appear to consist of any sort of optical tracking, and the glasses themselves seem to be easy plastic frames with no discernable screen, be it waveguide or birdbath (waveguides can be seen on Glasses Lite, however that’s not stating much). Despite the chunky plastic frames, they’re both substantially little too.

If Samsung AR Glasses did exist as we see them in the video above, it would represent a truly magic leap in mobile processing. Although we may not see these sorts of devices from Samsung for a while, it’s a fascinating appearance at the state of the industry., but you ‘d expect Samsung to understand more about what its competitors are up to than the basic public.

Although we might not see these sorts of gadgets from Samsung for a while, it’s a fascinating appearance at the state of the industry. Both Facebook and Apple are tight-lipped on their particular AR items, however you ‘d anticipate Samsung to know more about what its competitors depend on than the general public. The department between smartglasses as a ‘Lite’ alternative and AR glasses as a work-force-multiplier is an interesting choice which might be Big Tech’s first gambit into customer AR; i.e. offer lower priced smartglasses with tight software application combination and greater priced AR glasses for business and prosumers.
One intriguing idea outside the standard nevertheless is its ability to use active shading so it can not only make up for high ambient lighting, however coopt that function to use them as ‘dumb’ sunglasses. That may suggest the business wants to make them all-day wear devices.
The second device ideates a much more immersive feature set. Just called ‘Samsung AR Glasses’, it seeks to pitch the 6DOF-tracked headset for work applications such as 3D item design and collaborative in-person ‘holo calls’.
