- Xiaomi debuts an AR glass at the Mobile World Congress 2023, Barcelona, called the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition.
- The Xiaomi AR glasses will have a simple design but still distinguishable from regular glasses and weigh about the same.
- Xiaomi joins others like Microsoft and Google in the AR industry as we await confirmation from Apple about a similar product.
Xiaomi is showing off a pair of prototype augmented reality (AR) glass that it is calling the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition at the Mobile World Congress 2023. The Chinese electronics maker is taking its baby steps in a bid to catchup with Microsoft and Google.
The Windows maker already has HoloLens, a mixed reality head gear that costs between $3,000 to $5,000. While the Search giant has the Google Glass (and its several variations) that offer similar features but is simplified to look like regular glasses.
For people familiar with Xiaomi’s vision, it is not surprising that it is announcing this product has it has always touted itself as an all-round maker of electronics, not just smartphones.

The AR glasses is still a concept and may not be market-ready for a long time, but it does put it in contention anytime this kind of technology is discussed from now on.
Apple is also another smartphone maker that is in contention for owning a portion of the AR glass space but it is yet to confirm when this product will hit the market. The last we heard of the iPhone-maker’s wearable is that the release date has been moved back to later in 2023.
According to CNBC, the Xiaomi Wireless AR Glass Discovery Edition will be lightweight, much like Google’s and less like the sci-fi looking Microsoft Hololens.
It is equipped with retina-level display, gesture control support, and support for flagship Xiaomi smartphones like the upcoming Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro.
