Xiaomi Smart Glasses break cover
The Xiaomi Smart Glasses have been announced in concept form as the Chinese company’s first smart eyewear product. These resemble regular sunglasses but contain sensors and an optics system that enable a variety of smart functions such as navigation and real-time text translation.
The smart device is small and light, weighing just 51g, and uses a unique MicroLED optical waveguide technology that displays messages and notifications right in front of your eyes, according to the firm.
They are also reported to be able to conduct phone calls, provide augmented reality (AR) navigation, shoot photographs, and translate text in real-time.
The frame is squarish, with a band going across the top. The band that rests on top of the ears is a little thicker than usual, and it’s probably full of sensors.

As previously stated, the glasses use MicroLED imaging technology to reduce the amount of design space required in structural design as well as the device’s total weight. MicroLEDs, according to Xiaomi, offer a greater pixel density and a more straightforward structure. This enables for a more compact display as well as better integration with other screens.
It features a display chip that is only 2.4 x 2.02mm in size. Xiaomi claims that the display is around the size of a grain of rice under a microscope, with individual pixels measuring 4μm.
Xiaomi has chosen a monochromatic display solution in order to let enough light get through, and it is believed to be capable of achieving a peak brightness of 2 million nits. According to the firm, the Xiaomi Smart Glasses have 497 components, including tiny sensors and communication units.
The company says that the wearable can do autonomous tasks such as navigation, photography, acting as a teleprompter, and providing real-time text and photo translations.
These smart glasses include a 5MP camera that can snap photographs and interpret text. Xiaomi Smart Glasses can also translate sounds into text with real-time translations. Other features include a quad-core ARM CPU, a touchpad, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
These are powered by the Android operating system. No price has been revealed as of now because the device is still in its concept stage. Also, it goes without saying that if ever launched, this product will initially only be available in China.
