SAMSUNG is reportedly working on two sets of augmented reality glasses, according to a wild new leak video.
The video, which has not been posted from official Samsung accounts, claims to show high tech glasses that Samsung has been working on.
The glasses look like a hefty pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers.
Twitter leaker WalkingCat tweeted the supposedly leaked video which looks very professional.
WalkingCat has a good track record when it comes to leaks and has leaked Microsoft and Samsung tech before.
The leaker actually tweeted two videos reportedly showing the Samsung AR Glasses and Glasses Lite.
However, they did note that they could be concept videos.
The video which looks like an advert shows a man wearing the AR glasses and chatting to a woman on a virtual screen.
As well as allowing augmented reality, the glasses are also said to have a regular sunglasses mode should you want to wear them outside.
As with all rumours and leaks, we can’t be sure a product is definitely coming to market until official word from the company.
We have reached out to Samsung for comment.
Apple is also rumoured to be working on AR glasses.
Virtual Reality v.s. Augmented Reality – what’s the difference?
Here’s what you need to know…
- Virtual reality involves using a headset to simulate a virtual world
- In a VR world, everything you see will be computer-generated
- Popular VR headsets include the HTC Vive and Facebook’s Oculus Rift
- Augmented reality lets you see the real world, but “augments” (or adds on) computer-generated elements
- This means you’ll be able to see computer images overlaid onto your real-world view
- For instance, you could wear glasses that overlay directions onto the road in front of you
- Popular AR headsets include Microsoft’s HoloLens and the Google Glass spectacles
