Chinese tech company Vivo is aiming to grab a share of the immersive device market with a set of new augmented reality (AR) glasses built on 5G connectivity.

Previewed this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2019, Vivo AR Glass will work with the company’s new 5G smartphone.

The AR glasses will support dual-screen display and 6DoF technology, with a view to working in tandem with the 5G smartphone. 

Gamers will be able to play via their AR glasses with a smartphone as their console, while workers will be able to access mobile office applications and deploy their smartphones as keyboards.

The AR glasses will also be ideal for watching movies, and will boast facial and object recognition.

Also at MWC Shanghai 2019, Vivo announced the release of its first commercial 5G smartphone later this year, along with a range of other 5G-powered devices and applications.

Spark Ni, senior vice president of Vivo, said: “Vivo’s mission has always been to develop innovative products to deliver the ultimate user experience, with smart devices and smart services as the core of our business.”

“We hope through the introduction of new strategy and innovation we can truly make a big impact in improving people’s quality of life and the society as a whole.”

No release date or further details about Vivo AR Glass were revealed, but a joint launch with the Chinese tech company’s 5G smartphone later this year is likely.
