When using office applications, the glasses will serve as a monitor, with the smart phone acting as the keyboard.

Vivo Communication Technology Co. Ltd. unveiled its first ever augmented reality (AR) glasses at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, paving the way for the Chinese smart phone maker’s entry in the budding world of AR.

The Vivo AR Glass is designed like a regular-shaped pair of glasses. It supports dual-screen display and 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) technology, which refers to the freedom of movement in a three-dimensional space. The glasses will allow Vivo smart phone users to experience AR gaming, 3D high-definition video viewing, facial recognition and object recognition after connecting their glasses with their 5G smart phones.

The smart phone serves as the users’ controller for when they want to switch between applications. They can also use it as a console-like controller for AR games. When using office applications, the glasses will serve as a monitor, with the smart phone acting as the keyboard.

The AR glasses is just one of Vivo’s newly announced device offerings. The company has also introduced new smart watches, smart headphones and other smart devices. This could pit Vivo against key players Apple and Samsung, who have had their own line of smartwatches for a while now.

Meanwhile, Vivo said its first commercial 5G smart phone, the Vivo NEX 5G, will come out in the third quarter of 2019. The upcoming phone will be able to support 5G Cloud Game, 5G Screen Mirroring and 5G EasyShare, among many other features.

In addition, the company has unveiled a new charging technology that is able to charge devices at 50% for only five minutes or up to 13 minutes for a full 100% fully-charged battery. The Vivo Super FlashCharge 120W features a pump technology with a customizable Type-C data cable and travel charger.

Vivo said the move part of the company’s strategy to “deliver richer mobile experience in the 5G era.”

“Vivo’s mission has always been to develop innovative products to deliver the ultimate user experience, with smart devices and smart services as the core of our business,” Vivo’s Senior Vice President Spark Ni said in a statement.
