Oppo is holding its INNO Day 2020 conference on November 17 where it will showcase some of its future projects, including the AR Glasses. The Augmented Reality-powered smart glasses is something Oppo has been working on, which it will unveil tomorrow in Shenzhen, China. Oppo has shared a poster that shows off the design of the Oppo AR Glasses. We can see an array of sensors on the smartglasses that Oppo will announce but do not expect these hi-tech glasses to be available for purchase immediately. These will likely be a prototype that Oppo might launch much later.

The Oppo INNO Day 2020 is the company's future technology conference that takes place every year, much like those conferences from Google, Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. Oppo has rapidly come to the frontier of the tech world where it has launched some of the best tech innovations that other companies introduce later. Oppo AR Glasses is one of the many innovations that the company's heavily-focused R&D departments has so far been working on. Previously, Oppo was expected to launch the FDF full-dimensional portrait video technology, a full-link colour management system.

In its poster, Oppo said its AR Glasses will offer a comfortable viewing experience but how that will be achieved is not clear at the moment. There will be two cameras on the front, much like how Snap's Spectacles 3 come with. One of these two cameras might have an AR sensor that will offer various filters and features that can be applied on the regular scenery. Reportedly, the Oppo AR Glasses will have spatial audio recording with multiple microphones, 3D surround sound, and support for voice interaction among others.

The first instance of Oppo's shifted focus towards IoT products was revealed at last year's INNO Day conference. Oppo had revealed it is working on Augmented Reality-based glasses that will have four lenses. Among these lenses will be a ToF lens to measure distances, an RGB lens to shoot object shapes and map them, and two fisheye lenses for imaging. All four lenses could make it to the Oppo AR Glasses that the company will unveil tomorrow at its INNO Day.

Besides, Oppo will also show off its ambitious smartphone with a rollable display. The company has put out a teaser to show off some bits of this device but its main attraction is quite coming across. The Chinese company has been long-rumoured to be working on the foldable device that will help Oppo show its muscles against Samsung and Motorola. Both Samsung and Motorola have launched foldable display phones but LG is the only brand that is reportedly working on rollable displays. LG might end up calling it LG Roll but there are several other names in the list.
