HoloLens 2 may have an ARM chip and Windows 10-like interface
The next version of HoloLens could be unveiled at BUILD 2018
Microsoft is likely to be announcing the second-generation of HoloLens in May, but now we understand from sources familiar with the company’s plans that the AR-headset may have a dedicated AI coprocessor and an ARM processor with improved battery life compared with the current Intel chip. A report on Windows Central reveals that HoloLens 2 will have a wider field of view, longer battery life, and exciting software changes including a version of Windows Holographic built on the Windows Core OS.
Alex Kipman already hinted that something exciting is coming in 2018, so the developer conference BUILD 2018 in May may be the right place for an official announcement. The company was previously expected to first unveil Windows Core OS for thefoldable Andromeda device, but given the abandonment of the mobile adventure called Windows Phone and huge investments in AI / Cloud, it won’t be a big surprise if we never see such a mobile device.
