Apple's AR Glasses rumour persists
Quanta’s vice chairman C.C. Leung suggested the device will be a “headset-like gadget with a fully transparent lens that allows users to see through and interact with the environment,” according to Nikkei Asian Review.
“Currently, we see such a device available in the market no later than the year 2019,” he told reporters after the company’s earnings conference.
Leung noted that if an augmented reality device could carry a price tag lower than $1,000, it would likely become a hit in the market, although it is unlikely he has any knowledge of Apple’s pricing plans if they even exist yet.
