LG Uplus, the wireless carrier of LG Group, will soon start marketing the world’s first AR glasses, supporting 5G to differentiate its 5G network experience with VR content.
LG will release Uplus Real Glass developed in partnership with Nreal on 21 August 2020. Uplus is priced at $589, which is much cheaper than existing augmented reality glasses of other makers. Uplus will enable the user to enjoy augmented reality content and experiences when connected to a smartphone. Users can extend a display of as significant as 100-inch, concurrently with multiple applications using the phone as a remote controller.
The hand gesture option also is being developed to enable app operation on-screen with no use of mobile phones. LG U+ is also preparing to open the second augmented reality Studio in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province.
With sixty cameras supporting 4K-resolution filming, this new second studio will enable a stage to film AR videos for celebrities as well as provide a place for AR shows and conferences.
LG U+, at the moment, is offering a total of 2,200 augmented reality content and up to thirty percent from last year. This number is presumed to rise to 3,000 by the end of 2020.
