Roland Quandt revealed on social media that the second-generation enterprise version of Google Glass chips that GeekBench ran in the test was not using the Snapdragon 710 chip, but Qualcomm specifically targeting AR/ The chip involved in the VR scene.

However, as early as May of this year, Qualcomm has officially released the first chip dedicated to AR and VR devices - XR1. It is reported that the XR1 chip supports ultra-high definition 4K video resolution of up to 60 frames per second and supports special optimization for the AI-enabled AR experience. In addition, the XR1 also supports the three-degree-of-freedom and six-degree-of-freedom head tracking controller functions of the XR device.

Although Qualcomm gained the initiative in the global market in the mobile era, Apple, Xiaomi, Huawei, etc. have become the main force to buy their chips. However, along with the licensing agreement of Qualcomm, Apple and Huawei have started to independently research and develop chips or simply select Intel and MediaTek chips. At the same time, the intensified contradictions and frictions between Qualcomm and Apple have made both sides often open to court. Today, Apple has even smashed the chips that Qualcomm has developed. This has allowed Qualcomm to continue the incremental increase in mobile phone chips, and forced Qualcomm to make changes and try more areas. For example, wireless headphones, smart speakers, wearable devices, AR/VR, etc.

At present, the AR/VR field is regarded by many as the most likely project to break out after the 5G era. Because of the low latency of 5G, users can get a better gaming experience, higher speed 8K video and so on. These can play the VR application landing experience to bring a quality flyby.

and the Google version of the application, for Qualcomm, will undoubtedly strengthen its chip competitiveness in the AR / VR field. It is understood that the second generation of Google Glass Enterprise Edition has passed the US FCC certification. The glasses are similar in appearance to the first-generation enterprise version of Google Glass. However, according to media reports, the second generation is expected to continueThe flight capacity has been further improved. Also, a higher resolution camera module will be configured. Business people can access training videos, warranty lists, and immediate professional help from colleagues through Google Glass.
