Huawei unveiled a new line of smart glasses along with the P30 smartphone series. However, nothing has been heard of them since. Now, however, they have reportedly been released to the Chinese market in several different styles and opacities.

Huawei announced that it would release a new product along the lines of Google Glass back in March 2019. Their main application appears to be an audio device via bone conduction, like the Bose Altos before them. The OEM also announced that they would be capable of charging wirelessly in their specially-designed case. However, these Smart Glasses did not materialize as a retail product since their launch.

This has changed now, as they are reportedly on sale on the Chinese market. Huawei made somewhat of a thing about their collaboration with the Korean designers Gentle Monster in the making of these products; this is still apparently the case. They are also available in their promised numerous styles: Smart East Moon 01, Smart Jack Blue 01, Smart South Side 01, Smart Alio 01, and Smart Alio C1.

They are described as capable of integrating all the wireless tech they need, including antennae, chipsets, microphones and battery, within their large-sunglasses-like form factore. Their prices range from 1999 yuan (US$282) to 2499 yuan (US$353), whereas their Bose counterparts cost US$199. It will be interesting to see how the new Huawei accessories do against their more established competition should they find their way into more markets soon.
