Facebook is reportedly developing augmented reality (AR) glasses with a twist. These won’t be tethered to a mobile device, but will instead work as a standalone product that could replace smartphones. Facebook aims to release the product by 2025, but the company doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to making hardware that people actually want to buy. Remember the first and only Facebook Phone?

That HTC-made phone never had a future. Plus, Facebook isn’t at the top of the list of companies you’d trust with your mobile data. And yet, Facebook’s smart glasses that could potentially replace the smartphone would essentially mean you’d have to rely on Facebook for everything smartphone-related.

CNBC sources maintain that Facebook is partnering with Luxottica (owner of Ray-Ban, Oakley and other brands) on AR glasses nicknamed Orion. The social network is already in trouble for its approaches to privacy and data sharing, and it may be a stretch to convince the public that it can be

Nevertheless, Mark Zuckerberg and company seem to think that smart glasses will one day replace smartphones. They’re not alone, and it will probably happen at some point in the not too distant future. But for such a product to exist, we still need plenty both when it comes to mobile hardware and software. Smartphone components would have to be further miniaturized to fit inside glasses frames. On the software side, we’d need virtual assistants capable of taking commands for anything that we’d normally do on the phone using touch.

Facebook’s glasses project is codenamed Orion, CNBC reports, with the first model having been in development for about two years:

The glasses would allow users to take calls, show information to users in a small display and live-stream their vantage point to their social media friends and followers.

iOS 13 code suggests Apple’s exciting new AR glasses might launch sooner than we thought

iOS 13 code suggests Apple’s exciting new AR glasses might launch sooner than we thought Apple will unveil the iPhone 11 series next week, likely alongside new Apple Watch models, but these aren't the only new iOS products the company is developing. 

Facebook has a huge investment in virtual reality, most prominently in its ownership of Oculus, but the social media giant has confirmed that it ’s working on augmented reality glasses , too. Share All sharing options for: Facebook is building its own AR glasses .

Facebook has long voiced an interest in creating AR glasses , with Mark Zuckerberg teasing these Facebook is still firmly in the race to develop augmented reality glasses according to a new report. We're going forward on this We want to see those glasses come into reality, and I think we want to

But the company ran into trouble and sought help from Ray-Ban owner Luxottica. The object of the partnership is to get Facebook glasses in stores between 2023 and 2025. Apparently, Facebook has been struggling to reduce the size of the device into a form factor that people would find appealing.

Facebook is also developing an AI voice assistant that would act as a user input for the glasses. The AR glasses may be paired with a secondary controller, a ring device (project Agios) that would allow the user to input information via motion sensors. While there’s no guarantee that Facebook will ever ship this new product, Zuckerberg is prioritizing their development, according to the report.

Separately, The Information says that Facebook’s first smart glasses will be more of a Snap Spectacles equivalent — because of course Facebook would want to copy something Snapchat did first.

Also developed with Ray-Ban, these “Stella” glasses would work just like Spectacles. You’d be able to record video with cameras inside the frame, with Facebook also providing a voice assistant and a mobile app store:

With the Stella glasses and Ray-Ban partnership, Facebook wants to test whether people will feel comfortable wearing a Facebook-branded product on their faces, the person with knowledge of the project said. Snap popularized the concept first with the release of Spectacles in 2016. Facebook hopes to ship the Stella glasses within the next couple of years.

Assuming Facebook goes to production with these devices, Stella would probably precede Orion. By the time that happens, however, other tech giants may have AR glasses in stores you’d actually pay to own.

Apple is reportedly working with Valve on a totally new type of product like nothing we’ve seen .
The latest rumor claims that Apple might do something different with Valve, a well-known gaming company, on this device that’s supposed to work primarily with an iPhone. Apple proved in recent years that it has a plan in place for making up for lost iPhone sales, and all the brand new products it happened to have released during the period were intimately related to the iPhone.
