Huawei virtual reality headset may launch next year, which may compete with Apple Vision Pro

Huawei is said to be working on a virtual reality (VR) headset that will compete with the Apple Vision Pro. According to details shared by a tipster, the alleged high-end headset will be launched by the company in late 2024. Apple’s high-end spatial computer supports both augmented reality (AR) and VR content and runs on a dedicated operating system called VisionOS, while letting users interact with the device through their eyes, finger-based gestures, and a virtual keyboard. Allows for conversation.

X (formerly known as Twitter) user Mochamad Farido Fanani shares details of Huawei’s rumored VR headset in a post It adds that the Chinese tech group’s device will be powered by a “flagship processor.” However, it is fair to view these claims with some skepticism, as the user has no proven track record of reliably leaking information.

Although there’s no word on which chip will power Huawei’s headset, Apple’s first mixed reality headset is powered by two processors – Apple’s M2 chip for standard operations and processing spatial input from cameras, microphones and sensors. A new dedicated R1 chip.

According to Fanani, Huawei’s purported VR glasses will be equipped with an internal fan-powered heat dissipation system for thermal management, while the device will run on an external battery. This sounds similar to Apple’s approach with the first-generation Vision Pro headset, which also runs on an external battery.

Fanani says Huawei isn’t alone in its efforts to develop a VR headset – former Huawei sub brand Honor is also working on a system for a virtual reality headset. However, the tipster has not shared any details related to the hardware of the device. Samsung is also reportedly working on its ‘Infinite’ Extended Reality (XR) headset which could arrive in the second half of 2024.

Just months before Apple unveiled the Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset at WWDC 2023, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi unveiled its wireless AR Glasses Discovery Edition at MWC 2023, a headset powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR 2 Gen 1 chip . The smart glasses support both AR and VR content. The headset sports an advanced “Retina-level” display and supports Xiaomi’s AR gesture controls.

Last year, Oppo launched its second “assisted reality” headset, the Oppo Air Glass 2, at the company’s annual Oppo Inno Day in China. The device supports voice to text features and can translate conversations in real time, make phone calls and display location-based navigation instructions. According to the company, the weight of the wearable device is 38 grams.
