The Huawei x Gentle Monster Eyewear II utilises speakers and microphones instead of AR displays
Huawei has unveiled a new generation of smart glasses, called the x Gentle Monster Eyewear II. The company has partnered with Gentle Monster again and offers the glasses in four different frames and nine lenses.
The Huawei x Gentle Monster Eyewear II resembles the Bose Frames more than they do the Google Glass or Microsoft HoloLens 2. Huawei has integrated two speakers and microphones within the Eyewear II, which allow the glasses to pipe in a voice assistant. The glasses support phone calls too and have touch-sensitive temples for in-call controls. Presumably, the touch controls could be used for audio and media playback, also.
Huawei claims to have improved the speaker design for the first-generation glasses. Apparently, sound leakage has been reduced for this year's glasses too. Huawei has also made the handles of the handles more comfortable.
The Huawei x Gentle Monster Eyewear II will be available in China from September 10 starting at CNY 2,499 (~US$361). Huawei has yet to confirm whether it will release the glasses internationally, though.
