Extended Reality (XR) is Qualcomm’s new chip. This new chipset will enable sleek, highly capable glasses to deliver groundbreaking AR technology. New chipsets have smaller processors. AR performance is also improved 2.5 times. It uses half the power as well.

Coprocessors will handle important tasks, such as eye tracking. With iris authentication, it verifies identity and displays specific images only when the user looks at specific parts of the display. Energy savings are possible.

Using the FastConnect 7800 platform, the system can also utilize Wi-Fi 7. AR glasses will have less than 2 millisecond latency between them and host devices.

A 4nm process node will be used for Snapdragon AR2. Lenovo, LG, NREA, OPPO, Pico, QONOQ, Rokid, Sharp, TCL, Vuzix, and Xiaomi join the list of manufacturers interested in the platform.
