At the Snapdragon Technology Summit, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon XR2, the world’s first 5G-enabled extended reality platform capable of Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR) cross-domain expansion. Compared to the previous Snapdragon XR platform, the XR2 platform has achieved a tremendous upgrade since entering the 5G era.In addition, the Snapdragon XR2 is the world’s first XR platform to support seven-way parallel cameras with a dedicated processor for computer vision. This is key for advanced tracking, both of the environment and the user. Let’s not forget the  host of benefits that eye-tracking can unlock . This enables  highly accurate tracking of the head, lips, and eyes  as well as  26-point skeletal hand tracking  so that users may precisely interact with the VR world surrounding them. According to the chip-maker there are already multiple OEMs that plan to use the new platform, currently in various stages of prototype and evaluation. 5G is the cherry on the XR cake, though it’ll be optional for device-makers to include if they see fit.
