Huawei has released exciting new VR glasses: They are intended to replace classic monitors and conjure up the equivalent of a screen diagonal of 100 – 120 inches right in front of your eyes. Thanks to Micro-OLED, the image quality should also be right.
VR glasses are now socially acceptable and widespread among gamers. AR glasses (Augmented Reality), such as Google Glasses, are still in their infancy. A third category is currently emerging: digital glasses, which are intended to replace the classic monitor and television.
Now He Gang, Huawei Chief Operating Officer (COO), has presented exactly such glasses with the Huawei Vision Glass: It uses high-contrast micro-OLED technology and projects the user a screen with a diagonal of 120 inches ( at four meters) or 100 inches (at three meters) in front of the eyes.
In theory, this can replace large and space-hungry televisions and monitors. Unfortunately, the current version of Vision Glass “only” has a Full HD resolution (1920×1080, 53 PPD) and thus does not offer the sharpest resolution.
The built-in OLED panel should offer a bright 480 cd/m² and cover up to 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, which is important for media professionals. On top of that, there is also a low blue light certification (TÜV Rheinland). Huawei is said to have paid particular attention to the weight of the glasses so that they can be worn for a long time and, above all, comfortably.
The “virtual” distance to the screen of four meters should be particularly relaxing for the eyes. Glasses wearers are happy that short-sightedness can be compensated for with a setting.
An ultra-thin loudspeaker (128 mm2) is installed to round off the multimedia experience. This enables an open sound design that enables stereo audio and 3D partial sound. The Huawei Vision Glass can be easily connected to a PC, smartphone or tablet using a USB-C cable.
So far there is no official information on the price, release date and whether the glasses should also appear on the European market.
