China’s Vivo at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai has introduced AR glasses, a 5G device, smart watches and smart headphones. Following the launch of pre-commercial vivo NEX 5G smartphone earlier, Vivo displays its first commercial 5G smartphone, which will be officially available starting Q3 2019.
Based on 5G network and the 5G smartphone, the company also showcased a range of 5G applications including 5G Cloud Game, 5G Screen Mirroring and 5G EasyShare and many more smart life scenarios.
The 5G Cloud Game does not run on the smartphone itself, but on the cloud via 5G network thanks to 5G’s ultra-high speed and ultra-low latency. Through cloud rendering services, video and audio is streamed in real-time to the device. By shifting the processing from the device to the cloud, users can now enjoy high-definition picture quality and a low-latency gaming experience. This working model also applies to 5G Screen Mirroring and 5G EasyShare.
The Vivo AR Glass supports dual-screen display and 6DoF technology. After connecting it with the 5G smartphone, users can experience a range of applications such as mobile office, AR games, 3D high-definition video, facial recognition and object recognition on the vivo AR Glass.
Once the Vivo AR Glass projects the content, the 5G smartphone will then act as the control that allows user to switch and select applications. For instance, when playing a game, the smartphone becomes the main console. Whereas on a mobile office setting, the smartphone will turn into a keyboard. The five types of applications that are currently supported by the AR Glass are: mobile game, mobile office, 5G theatre, facial recognition and object recognition.
The company also announced Super FlashCharge 120W that takes only five minutes to charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 50 per cent, and can fully charge the smartphone in just 13 minutes.
