Xreal and Qualcomm are gunning for Apple together.

Last week Qualcomm announced a new AR/VR chip and reference design aimed at competing with Apple’s upcoming headset; yesterday Xreal (formerly Nreal) debuted some new spatial computing glasses with the same goal. And today the two companies announced a multiyear partnership that could include:

AR external hosts and processors; purpose-built devices and experience categories, such as fitness and sports; and artificial intelligence integrations.

A little vague, I’ll admit! But both companies have long AR track records and have worked together before, so as partnerships go, it’s a safer bet than many.
