Microsoft was already rumored to announce a new HoloLens headset at its Mobile World Congress event on February 24. CEO Satya Nadella is scheduled to star in with Julia White, a company manager in charge of Microsoft Azure and Kipman.
The original HoloLens AR headset was released in 2016 and made hologram-like 3D graphics in the real world in a self-contained package but has some technical boundaries. The next headset can improve things like field of view and bring more advanced controls as well as eye tracking. In November, Microsoft won a $ 480 million contract to supply the US Army with the HoloLens headset.
"We have many exciting things to talk about at MWC 2019," a Microsoft spokesman said.
