HoloLens v2

If you’re curious about Microsoft’s latest hardware related plans, you’ve reached the perfect spot because we’re about to reveal some fascinating news. Thurrott’s Brad Sams has excellent news, and shared it with the world. As a quick reminder, rumors from last year suggested that Microsoft stopped the development of the HoloLens V2 and was pushing forward towards V3.

The next-gen HoloLens is in the works

Sams says that “if you know where to look, the company is developing the hardware in broad daylight.” It seems that he was able to review some documents and to find out that Microsoft is targeting a Q1 2019 release of the next-gen HoloLens codenamed Sydney. According to the documents that have been reviewed by him, the device is built to be lighter and more comfortable to wear. It will also have improved holographic displays, and it will definitely be a lot cheaper compared to the current HoloLens version. This is all excellent news, we know.

Microsoft is boldly approaching the MR/VR market

It’s not sure whether the Q1 marks general availability or only a developer preview. Sams also wrote that based on the documents that he got the chance to analyze, Microsoft is definitely targeting the MR/VR market with the aim of ruling it. This might be because the tech giant is on the sidelines of the smartphone segment and not keeping up with this generation of devices would harm the company and would keep it in the point where it’s nothing more than a cloud firm.

If we take into consideration that the new Xbox family is set to reach the market in 2020 and Andromeda devices will be launched this year, it’s fair to state that Microsoft is indeed making some impressive progress worth noting.
