While we await the launch of the Mate 30 Pro with bated breath, Huawei has now gone ahead and received trademarks for both AR and VR glasses. This follows the myriad of previous trademarks rumored to be for the Mate 30 series, but gives weight to talks of Huawei working on its own pair of AR glasses.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu last year revealed that the company was working on a pair of augmented reality (AR) glasses. He sees a ton of value in AR technology and the new trademark applications prove the same. You can find the trademark application below:
Huawei Technologies filed two trademarks application with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) and at the UK IPO (Intellectual Property Office) a couple of days ago on August 14. These are for the Huawei AR Glasses and VR Glasses, with the description describing the devices as 3D spectacles, eyeglasses, and smartglass.
There’s not a whole lot of information available in the trademark applications, except for the simplistic names and descriptions. The Chinese giant will be attending the IFA 2019 conference in Berlin next month, so we can expect to get a first look at these glasses at this event. We could also get a closer look at the Harmony OS-powered Honor Vision TV with a pop-up camera.
If you remember, Huawei unveiled its first pair of smart glasses in partnership with the Korea-based fashion brand Gentle Monster. It doesn’t feature a smart display or similar technology but instead works as an earbuds replacement. However, we could now look forward to an official pair of AR/VR glasses from Huawei at IFA 2019 next month.
