眼镜, which are only a concept currently, can display messages, 打电话, navigate, and translate text

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has revealed its concept smart glasses that can display messages and notifications, 打电话, capture photos, and translate text.

The smart glasses, which do not yet have a name, use MicroLED technology with a high pixel density to make a display chip measuring only 2.4-by-2.02 millimetres with a peak brightness of two million nits; the display itself is the size of a grain of rice.

MicroLED is set to be the successor to OLEDs. They are individually lit and allow for brighter displays and deeper detail in black areas, but can have a higher pixel density and a loner lifespan.

Xiaomi says that the smart glasses integrate 497 different components so it can function “as a new smart terminal with independent operating capability”, allowing it to act as a camera with a 5MP lens on the front, navigator, or teleprompter.

The glasses apparently have a quad-core ARM processor, a touch pad, wifi and Bluetooth connectivity, and run on the Android operating system – weighing only 51 grams.
