After presenting the smart glasses concept last year, the Chinese company Xiaomi introduced a new smart glasses called Mijia on August 1. With the new glasses, the Chinese tech giant will become the latest entrant in the augmented reality (AR) segment.
The Mijia AR glasses camera comes with 15x hybrid zoom and a dedicated Snapdragon 8 processor. The glasses, which can be pre-ordered from August 3 on Xiaomi’s internal crowdfunding platform, will cost CNY 2,499 (about $370).
The Snapdragon chipset is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. According to GSMArena, the glasses will probably come from an independent ISP. They support Bluetooth version 5.0 and come with a 1020 mAh battery with support for 10 W magnetic charging.
The glasses feature a Sony silicon-based micro-LED display with a peak brightness of 3000 nits and TUV certification by Rheinland for blue light levels.
Xiaomi has placed a large camera prominently on the frame, which is likely to lead to discussions about whether a camera should be placed on the face from a privacy point of view. The dual camera comes with a 50MP main sensor with Quad Bayer pixel binning. The secondary camera of the glass is an 8MP 5x telephoto periscope with OIS. This can enable 100 minutes of continuous recording.
The periscope camera offers a 5x optical zoom and 15x digital zoom and also comes with optical image stabilization that helps reduce blur and shake.
The AI camera is packed with smart features, including the ability to translate English to Mandarin and vice versa.
Users of the wearable, which weighs 100 grams, can connect the Mijia Glasses Camera to the phone via the Mijia app. This allows users to import photos, share photos, and apply the template to a movie.
