T-Mobile and Qualcomm team up to create AR glasses for your cell phone

Virtual reality, augmented reality, extended reality—these have all become something of popular expressions on the internet of late, particularly with Facebook making grandiose plans for XR with its “Meta” re-brand, and Apple’s mixed reality headset perhaps showing up the next year.

U.S. mobile carrier T-Mobile is the most recent to stand out as truly newsworthy in this domain by declaring its recently manufactured organization with Qualcomm, especially with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Spaces XR Developer Platform.

Snapdragon Spaces was just barely launched by Qualcomm to make software advancements towards planning mobile apps to carry a three-dimensional experience to cell phone clients. Snapdragon Spaces additionally incorporates top-tier software developer kits for the some of best 3D engines (among which is Epic Games’ well known Unreal Engine), bringing the best tools accessible to fuel developers’ creativity in the XR realm.

The exclusive Snapdragon-Qualcomm partnership will give T-Mobile a monstrous headstart in its plans for developing AR glasses that pair with your cell phone, making a fully immersive experience of augmented reality that doesn’t need unnecessary gear like consoles or computers.

T-Mobile President of Technology, Neville Ray, expressed in an official statement this week that “5G is powering more immersive experiences that better connect us to people and things around the world, and glasses will be one of the first disruptive new product categories. AR glasses will make a real impact for both businesses and consumers, but first we need to build the ecosystem of developers that will bring new applications to life, and Snapdragon Spaces is a critical step in making this happen.”

The new partnership will also allow participants in T-Mobile’s Accelerator program to interact with and develop new XR 3D products—both hardware and software—within the Snapdragon Spaces hub.

T-Mobile’s Accelerator program, for the record, is dedicated to creating a community where innovative ideas are shared, and entrepreneurs and startups can engage in productive collaborations “for driving ideas, innovation and action.”

T-Mobile has already committed to begin working alongside “startups and developers using Snapdragon Spaces to build immersive 5G experiences for AR glasses across gaming, entertainment and other industries starting in spring 2022.”
