Huawei is working with Gentle Monster on camera-less smart glasses that look fashionable
Huawei's "one more thing" moment at its grand unveiling in Paris was the fact that it's working with Korean luxury eyewear company Gentle Monster on a range of smart glasses.
Before you scream "Google Glass!", or "Snap Spectacles!", know that these will not have any cameras. Oh, and they'll also look like ordinary, and, dare we say it, fashionable glasses. So maybe that will help Huawei succeed where others have failed before?
That remains to be seen - through a pair of these or not. Also up in the air are any details regarding pricing, although they should launch in July. What we do know so far is that the glasses will have a 2,200 mAh battery inside, with support for wireless charging, and a voice assistant built-in.
You'll be able to answer calls by tapping the arms of the glasses, which also house directional mics and speakers. The glasses are IP67 water and dust resistant, come with Bluetooth and NFC, and have a USB-C port.
