Kuo: Apple’s Mixed Reality Headset Will Have No Fewer Than 15 Cameras

Apple’s unannounced mixed reality headset will feature no fewer than 15 different cameras. That’s according to a new research note shared by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to the note, seen by MacRumors, there will be 15 cameras of which eight will be used for augmented reality experiences.

A further six will offer “innovative biometrics,” while the one remaining camera will be used for object detection, the report says.

The report goes on to discuss the weight of the current prototypes as well as the weight Apple’s headset is expected to pack once it goes into production ahead of a launch in 2022.

The headset will be “portable” with independent computing power and storage, but not “mobile” like an iPhone. Current prototypes weigh in at 200 to 300 grams, but the final weight may be reduced to 100 to 200 grams should Apple be able to solve technical problems.

Based on those numbers and according to Kuo, Apple’s headset will be significantly less hefty than those from competing products. Pricing is obviously up in the air, but anything around the $1,000 price point makes sense given the technology in play.

Apple has been rumored to have a mixed reality headset in the works for years now, with a launch thought to be edging ever closer. The latest suggestion is that we will see its arrival next year, although that is obviously subject to change.
