The new chip is part of Qualcomm’s Extended Reality (XR) offerings. Qualcomm claims that the new chipset will deliver groundbreaking AR technology that will unlock a new generation of sleek, highly capable glasses. The main processor on the new chipset takes up less space on the printed circuit board. It also improves AR performance by 2.5 times. The chip also uses 50% less power.

The AR co-processor will handle important tasks such as eye-tracking. Its iris authentication not only verifies identity but also renders specific images only when the user is looking at a certain part of the display. This could save on power consumption.

The system also uses the FastConnect 7800 connectivity platform allowing it to utilize Wi-Fi 7. This will allow latency between AR glasses and the host device which is less than 2 milliseconds.

The Snapdragon AR2 Gen 1 will be built on a 4nm process node. The company also unveils the names of the manufacturers interested in the platform “including Lenovo, LG, Nreal, OPPO, Pico, QONOQ, Rokid, Sharp, TCL, Vuzix and Xiaomi.
