Lenovo Releases iPhone-Compatible AR Glasses Before Apple

A lot of rumors and speculation have been floating about regarding Apple’s first mixed reality headset, which is said to be released sometime in 2019. But even though that day has not yet arrived, Lenovo has unveiled its most recent augmented reality (AR) glasses, which they call “T1.” These glasses, to everyone’s surprise, are compatible with iPhones, iPad, and even Mac.

Meet the T1 glasses from Lenovo.

The Lenovo T1 Glasses are the company’s response to the challenge of getting this product segment suitable for widespread use. The layout is not very complex, and there is not much really innovative about it. Simply put, these are dark glasses fitted with specialized lenses. Because it is dependent on being linked to some other device in order to function, the business markets it to customers as “your personal mobile display solution.”

The new AR glasses from Lenovo have hardware that is not very outstanding, but it seems to be enough for the majority of circumstances. It makes use of two Micro OLED displays, each of which has a screen resolution of 1080p and is capable of displaying material in Full HD at a frequency of 60Hz. It is also approved to have a minimal amount of blue light and reduce flickering for improved comfort for the eyes.

The Lenovo Glasses T1’s luminosity level is adequate, the colors are vibrant, and both the interface and the words are “clear” enough, claims ArsTechnica, who had the chance to test out a prototype model of the device. However, the study also states that operating the glasses via another gadget could seem odd at times, which is something that should be taken into consideration.

The new glasses offered by Lenovo do not come with a CPU pre-installed in order to keep the price down. Because of this, the gadget has to be connected to a mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone, or laptop. A USB-C cable may be used to connect it to any device that is compatible with it, and Lenovo has said that it will include an adapter specifically for iPhone owners.

Naturally, this ends up limiting what you can accomplish with the Lenovo eyewear, but it’s inevitable. According to Lenovo, the device is geared at customers who wish to expand the experiences they are having on their digital smart devices so that they may have a truly immersive experience. You have the option to do things like watch movies or engage in video games, for instance. In case you were curious, the glasses also have speakers built right into the frame.

Pricing And Availability

The new eyewear from Lenovo will be introduced around the end of this year in China, and in 2023 it will become available in “certain areas.” Although the firm did not provide specifics on pricing, a spokesperson from the company indicated to ArsTechnica that the device should be priced at less than $500.

During this time, it has been rumored that Apple has been working on two new AR/VR devices. In the not-too-distant future, the business intends to launch its very own augmented reality glasses in addition to its mixed reality headset, which, owing to the high-end nature of its technology, is anticipated to have a price tag of up to $3,000.
