Microsoft might surprise us with HoloLens 2



    Microsoft will hold a press conference at Mobile World next month to unveil HoloLens 2 , and it looks like we’ll get some details on HoloLens 2. The software giant will hold its event on Sunday February 24th at 5PM CET (11AM ET) , and CEO Satya Nadella, Technical Fellow Alex Kipman, and CVP Julia White will all be in attendance. Kipman’s name indicates this will likely be a HoloLens 2 event, given his close involvement with this project.

    Rumors had suggested Microsoft would unveil HoloLens 2 late last year or early 2019, so this event fits that timeline. Reports have indicated Microsoft will use Qualcomm's 850 or XR1 chip to power the system -- Qualcomm designed the latter specifically for VR and AR headsets. It supports 4K video at 60 frames per second, along with 3D overlays and directional audio. HoloLens 2 will include a custom AI chip, Microsoft has confirmed, and reports suggest the upcoming headset will be more comfortable than its predecessor.


    Microsoft has typically avoided Mobile World Congress in recent years, after killing off Windows Phone. The company used to hold annual press events for Windows Mobile and Windows Phone updates at Mobile World Congress, alongside mobile device announcements. This is an unusual return to Barcelona for microsoft.
