Samsung files patent for device that Apple has reportedly given up on – Phone Arena

The latest report has Apple giving up on its AR-based smartglasses project, which was considered to be its next big thing after the iPhone. Meanwhile, Samsung has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (via Patently Apple) related to its AR glasses. The patent application reveals a pair of glasses that turn on automatically when unfolded. A projector, located in the glasses’ temple, beams light on a small display located a lens. Thick frames house the electronics used by the device, which could employ ARM-based processors.

A couple of years ago, Samsung released a video of a project called Monitorless which showed a pair of AR-based smartglasses that look very similar to the illustrations used in the patent application. These glasses connected to a Samsung handset via Wi-Fi while the
phone connects to a user’s PC with a cellular signal. This would allow users to see their desktop display through the glasses (hence the Monitorless name). Sammy showed off the Monitorless glasses at Mobile World Congress in 2017. Using electrochromic glass, the headset can be switched between Augmented and Virtual Reality. This type of glass can change their opacity by applying voltage to it.
