The AR Glass has two cameras clearly visible on each glass, so there’s no fooling people into thinking these are a regular pair of glasses. Behind the transparent displays, the cameras have 6DoF tracking. It comes with a cable dangling from the glasses that needs to be connected to the 5G phone. According to Vivo, the AR Glass enables users to enjoy five use-cases including gaming, work, movie viewing, facial recognition, and object recognition.

As reported by The Verge, Vivo hasn’t revealed any details about the 5G smartphone yet and the phone is expected to launch in the third quarter this year.
