“How many people want to wear this as we meet our friends or lovers?”
During the Huawei P30 Series launch event at the Paris Convention Center, Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) unveiled the new smart glasses built in partnership with premium Korean eyewear company Gentle Monster.
Huawei X Gentle Monster smart eyewear features speakers and two microphones that allow you to accept calls from your phone, interact with a virtual assistant, and listen to music. They also charge wirelessly. There’s IP67 dust/water resistance, a 2,200 mAh battery. However, you won’t find any cameras on Huawei’s smart glasses.
According to huaweicentral, the new Huawei x Gentle Monster wearable is expected to launch in June or July 2019. The company did not release any details about the pricing.
