Rumours that Apple would be working on its own augmented and virtual reality glasses have rekindled this Friday (27) with new indications that the project is really under development.
Citing a source familiar with the subject, Cnet indicates that the product – identified by the codename T288 – will have a display with an 8K resolution for each eye. The accessory would also be independent of smartphones, computers or even special cameras to bring the glasses to real-world objects.
Most interesting, though, is that the publication claims that the product could reach as far back as 2020 – that is if Apple does not change or give up on its current plans.
The company has long been very interested in the industry. In addition to evolving augmented reality capabilities with the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, the company’s own CEO, Tim Cook, has stated in the past that technology is “huge” for the market.
Apple has not officially commented on the augmented and virtual reality glasses rumours.
