Glasses Lite, these are Samsung's AR glasses?

Samsung also seems to be struggling with the creation of AR glasses, a type of wearable device capable of superimposing images and additional information to the user's field of vision. Despite the total absence of official press releases on the subject, today it is possible to take a preview look at the (alleged) product thanks to two videos leaked online: it is called Glasses Lite.

AR glasses: here is Samsung Glasses Lite

The clips were published by the WalkingCat profile on Twitter, already well known to those who follow the evolution of the mobile universe thanks to the many leaks published. What makes the concept in question interesting is the ability to adapt to both the professional and leisure environment, with what is called Sunglasses Mode which darkens the lenses, effectively transforming the device into sunglasses for use in outdoor environments.

With Glasses Lite it is possible to edit a document, send an email or start a video call as well as watch a movie, episodes of a TV series, a streaming movie or fly a drone observing its point of view in first person, all without having to sit in front of a real screen, thanks to augmented reality. The second of the two videos shows the device in another color and in use for the shared presentation of a project.

Since this is a leak, it is currently impossible to establish whether the product will actually arrive on the market and, even in the case, if those listed are actually offered features. In any case, the interest of the group towards this category cannot be excluded considering how Apple has also put advanced devices based on AR and VR in the pipeline.

Samsung’s first smart glasses might have just leaked

  • A couple of purported Samsung videos show two smart glasses concepts that Samsung might be developing.
  • The Glasses Lite wearable would connect to smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices, transforming app experiences into AR experiences.
  • The Samsung AR Glasses concept shows a more sophisticated version of the product, which would work a lot like Microsoft’s HoloLens.
  • Smart glasses, which could describe any version of spectacles that can do more than address eyesight issues, are in development at various tech companies. These could be augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), or mixed reality (MR) glasses. The concept is similar. A wearable device that’s slightly or significantly bulkier than regular glasses would project images on the user’s retina. The images would appear on top of the real environment around the user (AR and MR) or replace reality with a virtual world for a more immersive entertainment experience (VR). Several companies already sell VR devices that work with computers and gaming consoles, while others have launched the first AR and MR wearables — Microsoft’s HoloLens is a notable MR mention. Several similar devices were just announced at CES 2021.

    But creating smart glasses that are just slightly thicker than regular glasses remains a significant challenge for tech companies. Several rumors have claimed that Apple is working on smart glasses of its own, but it’s hardly the only tech company to do so. It would surprise nobody to learn that Samsung has its own smart glasses in the works, and a couple of videos show two such concepts that the South Korean giant is reportedly developing.

    A Twitter user who goes by the name WalkingCat has shared two videos that appear to come from Samsung. While there’s no way to verify their authenticity, 9to5Google says the leaker has provided accurate details about unreleased Samsung devices in the past, including the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite and the new Galaxy Chromebook 2.

    The first video shows a Samsung Glasses Lite device that looks like a thicker version of the Snap Spectacles. It’s also a smarter version of Spectacles that would interact with all sorts of devices, including Samsung smartwatches, Android smartphones and tablets, and Windows computers.

    The video shows a user typing an email on a virtual Dex display that the glasses project on the retina. The glasses can also be used to play games and watch video, with the screen moving around as the user tilts their head. The concept video also shows the user engaging in a video call while standing in the kitchen, although there is a massive problem with this type of experience. The other person would not see the smart glasses wearer unless there’s a second camera somewhere in the room. The Glasses Lite would also work outside, with the clip showing the user piloting a drone, with the camera feed projected right on the retina. The glasses would also turn to sunglasses mode while outside.

    In simpler terms, the Glasses Lite would take many of the apps available on a smartphone and bring them over to a bigger display via Samsung Dex. But it won’t be a physical monitor.

    The second clip shows a different version of the glasses that looks more like an alternative to Microsoft’s HoloLens. These are the Samsung AR Glasses that would project all sorts of 3D images on top of the real work. The user would interact with these digital creations, whether it’s a virtual keyboard, 3D objects that can be manipulated, or holograms of clients who participate in a complex AR simulation.

    Some of the use cases in this example also imply the need for external cameras and additional sensors to detect gestures and allow the user to interact with digital objects. Also, it’s unclear how the holographic meeting between people would work. Those digital avatars that visit the room would require plenty of other sensors in the room to visit the virtual home the user is working on.

    Then again, the purpose of these concept videos isn’t to explain everything. Plenty of tech developments will be required to bring these products to life. While Samsung is yet to confirm these products, the company certainly has what it takes to develop this kind of products. Samsung launched VR glasses before, but those needed a compatible Galaxy phone to work. The future versions of AR and VR glasses might only require a tethered or wireless connection to a phone, tablet, or computer.
