Samsung’s AR Headset Prototype Was Being Examined With An Unattractive Design, Inefficient Exynos 2200 To Compete With Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional

Samsung’s concept for an AR headset that goes toe-to-toe with the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional was revealed in an allegedly leaked picture, however the Korean big underestimated the capabilities and aesthetics of its rival’s product. Right here is how totally different the headset seems.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung stopped growth on this prototype, firm now rumored to be engaged on a extra succesful AR headset

The Chinese language media outlet ‘VR陀螺’ reported on Samsung’s unnamed AR headset, which additionally included a leaked picture of the prototype. Although the pictures have been deleted, Brad Lynch put out a publish on X displaying Samsung’s progress, and our first impression is that the corporate has a mountain to climb in matching the design of the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional. Even when the design couldn’t compete with Apple’s mixed-reality headset, at the least the internals would do justice to the gadget, however not on this event.

The place the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional is powered by the M2 and R2 pairing, Samsung’s AR headset prototype options an Exynos 2200, the identical SoC discovered within the Galaxy S22 collection, and was infamous for its lack of energy effectivity and performance-related points. Examine this chipset to the M2, and the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional can be miles forward of a competing product. Moreover, the gadget touted twin RGB cameras, a depth sensor for passthrough, and eye-tracking sensors.

The one saving grace of Samsung’s AR headset was that it featured microLED panels, a rear-mounted battery that seemingly doesn’t have a cable tethered to it, and the power to operate with none controller. Probably after testing the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional announcement, Samsung canned growth on this prototype to work on one thing that places it on par with Apple’s first-generation head-mounted wearable.

This rumored choice means that the official launch date of the AR headset shall be pushed again, so there’s potential for Samsung to enhance the design whereas additionally utilizing higher {hardware}. Then once more, since Samsung doesn’t make its personal M-series-like chips, it should both should proceed utilizing an Exynos model, or supply from Qualcomm, until it comes up with a miracle chipset, which appears uncertain at this stage.
