Meta Unveils AR Glasses with OLED Display & Snapdragon Chip, Set for 2027 Release


Meta AR Glasses: What to Expect, Release Date, Features, and More

Meta recently confirmed the development of their AR glasses, set to revolutionize the world of wearables with a focus on augmented reality experiences. While details remain scarce, reports offer insights into what we can anticipate from this upcoming device, as well as its expected release date and features.

The company, formerly known as Facebook, has been making strides in the realm of virtual and augmented reality with products like the Quest 3, which seamlessly integrates AR into their VR headsets. This integration allows users to enjoy a blend of both realities through a single device.

Celebrating a decade of Reality Labs in early April, Meta hinted at the new AR Glasses in a blog post without divulging much information about its offerings. Speculations suggest that LG will supply the OLED display for the glasses, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip, potentially the AR2 Gen 1 or AR1 Gen 1.

Expected features of the Meta AR Glasses include AR and AI components, alongside an interactive heads-up display (HUD). Reports indicate a price point of around $1,500, positioning it similarly to Google Glass upon its debut.

As for the release date, Meta is projected to launch the AR Glasses by 2027, unveiling them at the Meta Connect 2024 event as a preview. In the meantime, the company plans to introduce another pair of smart glasses next year before the anticipated AR Glasses hit the market.

Last year’s leaked roadmap outlined Meta’s focus on VR and mixed-reality experiences ahead of the AR glasses, emphasizing the company’s dedication to these platforms before transitioning to AR by 2027.

While users await the Meta AR Glasses, set to be showcased next year, excitement builds for the truly immersive augmented reality experience they promise to deliver in a few years’ time. Stay tuned for updates as Meta continues to push the boundaries of wearable technology.
