You could say that a, in the field of Augmented Reality (RA) It has not gone too well. Thethey were a resounding failure due to their limited distribution and absurd price, but that does not seem to have prevented the Great G is still determined to get a viable device . We are all waiting for Google to move the tab in the field of the RA, in the same way that it has done in Virtual Reality with the Google Daydream , and it seems that the moment has arrived.
Sources to which the German half has had accessthey claim that Google would be working on an autonomous Augmented Reality headset . What does this mean by autonomous? That it does not need external devices to work (for example, the Oculus Rift – Virtual Reality – they have to be connected to a computer, which is the one that processes the content). In other words, it seems that the guys from Google have put their batteries launch your particular version of the Microsoft HoloLens to the market.
This device is known as Google A65.
To carry out such a mission, the Google A65 , as it is known in the internal scope of the company, it would use one of the Qualcomm’s latest chips, the QSC603 , a variant of the Snapdragon range designed for the Internet of Things. This processor consists of four Kryo 300 cores, two of them at 1.6 GHz and the other two at 1.7. It also raises the possibility of using the QSX605, which is slightly more powerful (eight cores at 2.5 GHz) Apparently, Google would be working with the Taiwanese manufacturer Quanta which, for those who do not know it, was commissioned to make the Pixel C a reality.
To give you an idea of the power of the processor, the QSC603, built in 10 nanometers, is able to generate live video in WQHD and display overlapping 3D images about the scene that we are observing. It is compatible with OpenGL, OpenCL and Vulcan (all three are graphic interfaces). It also has WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1 and GPS.
The date is unknown in which this device will be presented, although we do not expect it in the short and medium term. We will have to be patient and wait for Google to tell us something. The only thing I ask Google is to moderate the price and not get on the HoloLens car, whose label marks neither more nor less than 3,299 euros.
