Recent reports point out that Meta is now in a partnership with MediaTek, the chip manufacturing firm. This partnership aims to drive the production of chips or processors for AR smart glasses. The announcement was made public by a MediaTek executive, Vince Hu, during the company’s annual event for this year.
At the MediaTek Summit 2023, netizens learned that Ray-Ban smart glasses will use a new chip. With these coming chips, Ray-Ban will be able to break the boundaries of the AR industry. The new chips will also come with support for some technology that isn’t currently available on Ray-Ban glasses that are currently retailing.
Some of these technologies include things like a viewfinder display to blend the AR world with the real world. This partnership will bring visible changes to the AR glass that Meta’s Ray-Ban produces. Netizens can expect these glasses to become more functional for use in everyday activities.
MediaTek is bringing its chip development abilities to Meta Ray-Ban glasses with a new partnership
In an aim to improve the performance of its AR glasses, Meta is partnering with MediaTek. Meta is working to strengthen its presence in the AR and VR industry and is improving the products it offers. In the AR industry, Meta’s brand Ray-Ban dominates with the various AR smart glasses they offer.
Meta now intends to strengthen that dominance with this new MediaTek partnership. Already the AR space is getting more competitive with new products coming from rival brands. To stand out from the crowd, Meta needs to improve upon the performance and usability of its Ray-Ban AR smart glasses.
This is where the chips that will be developed as a result of this new partnership will come into play. MediaTek will work closely with Meta to develop chips that will help take Ray-Ban AR smart glasses ahead of the competition. Future AR glasses that will launch under this partnership will bring features that will make them more usable on an everyday basis.
Users might be able to use these glasses for more than just recording videos, connecting with their phone, and so on. They will be able to perform actions such as scanning QR codes and accessing their content, reading messages on their smartphones and so much more. MediaTek already has a good name for itself in the chip manufacturing industry, from budget performance chips to flagship chips on smartphones.
This partnership will also see Meta shift away from Snapdragon on its AR glasses. Already, the existing Meta Ray-Ban AR smart glass uses a chip from Qualcomm. In the coming future, more details on AR glass that will use the MediaTek chip will become available.
