Microsoft Teams With Qualcomm For AR Headset

Microsoft and Qualcomm will be working together on a chip for a next-generation augmented reality headset.

The device will support both AR and mixed reality platforms, Microsoft Mesh and Snapdragon Spaces.

Qualcomm President and CEO Cristiano Amon announced today that the new chipset will be for “next-generation lightweight glasses” with a more power-efficient processor meaning it can be used in smaller glasses.

“This collaboration reflects the next step in both companies’ shared commitment to XR and the metaverse,” said Hugo Swart, vice president and general manager of XR, Qualcomm.

“Qualcomm Technologies’ core XR strategy has always been delivering the most cutting-edge technology, purpose-built XR chipsets and enabling the ecosystem with our software platforms and hardware reference designs.

“We are thrilled to work with Microsoft to help expand and scale the adoption of AR hardware and software across the entire industry.”
