Oppo, the Chinese phone maker, is one of the brands that falls under the BBK Electronics umbrella along with OnePlus, Realme, Vivo and iQOO.
OnePlus ships its phones within the US while other brands do not. Even Oppo, the world's fourth largest smartphone brand after Samsung, Apple and Xiaomi, does not ship its devices to countries although this may change.
Last week, Oppo announced that it will display augmented reality (AR) glasses (OPPO Air Glass and OPPO AR) at Augmented World Expo USA 2022.
According to Android Central, the event will take place June 1-3 in Santa Clara, California. Oppo announced Air Glass in China last December and the device was launched last January.
Oppo uses a single lens design for its Air Glass AR wearable
Unlike most AR glasses, the Air Glass is monocular with a single ear frame and displays data obtained from an Oppo phone at an average brightness of 1,400 nits.
This is even clearer than the 1,000 nits (1,200 max) nits found in the iPhone 13 Pro Max. A small coffee bean-sized Spark Micro Projector projects images onto a microLED lens.
The single-lens Oppo Air Glass was unveiled last December – Oppo is planning to show two augmented reality glasses next month in California.
The Oppo Air Glass is powered by the same Snapdragon 4100 chip used in some Wear OS smartwatches like the TicWatch Pro 3. The Snapdragon 4100+ was also found in Fossil Gen 6 last September.
Oppo AR Glass is a more traditionally designed device with two lenses. The device provides simultaneous language translation and 3D depth mapping. To use Air Tracked Gestures with Oppo Air Glass or Oppo AR Glass, user must have Oppo phone and Oppo Watch 2 nearby.
