Today, augmented reality glasses company Vuzix announced the M400 Smart Glasses, which will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. They will be one of the first headsets powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 platform when they hit the market later this year. Vuzix will announce pricing and availability this spring.

This latest headset will run on Android and will have USB-C connectivity. It will have built-in GPS, a multifinger support pad and better noise canceling. The Snapdragon XR-1 processor offers an ARM-based multi-core CPU, vector processor, Qualcomm's AI engine and a vector processor. This allows for on-device processing of machine learning algorithms, allowing for a superior augmented reality experience.

Vuzix has previously made a consumer-level smart headset called the Blade, but it's clear that the trend in these types of glasses are aimed squarely at enterprise consumers. The Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses are just the latest AR device to do so, after Microsoft's Hololens 2.
