According to a new ETNews report, sources have claimed that the South Korean tech giant is teaming up with Japan’s NTT DoCoMo. This collaboration will be to build AR glasses that are “very light.” Apparently, the new glasses would weigh in just 79.38 grams. Although this is still heavier than a typical pair of eyeglasses, it is still a lot lighter than AR or VR headsets that are currently available in the market.

The report suggested that both LG and NTT DoCoMo are in the process of discussing and finalizing features. Notably, the two companies have partnered up in the past as well to work on both 5G and LTE networking. Unfortunately, LG has declined to comment on the matter at this moment, but if the reports are true, we can see these new AR glasses sometime in 2021.
While the idea of a light AR glass sure is attractive, there are still too many unknown factors. With the weight of the wearable being so light, we can expect that most of the processing power and calculations being done through a smartphone or another secondary gadget, with connectivity made through a custom specialized software. Although, that is just a speculation, so take it with a pinch of salt.
