Tomorrow at 12:00 ET, Microsoft will host an event to announce its next generation of HoloLens. While the company has kept most of the details about the unit close to the chest, it seems that the party begins a little early.
WalkingCat has uncovered some pictures of what is likely to be the next generation of HoloLens. As you can see in the pictures, the device looks to be smaller than the first iteration, but it's still a whole headset you carry.
As far as specifications are concerned, while we are not quite familiar with the whole story yet, we know that it uses a Snapdragon 850. It is also safe to say that we should see longer battery life and improved FOV (field of view) with the new hardware ; Luckily we will know the rest of the details tomorrow.
Based on the pictures, we can see at least 4 forward-looking cameras, possibly five depending on what the circle is in the middle, and the headband is thinner than previous generations. The earpiece part of the forehead is probably designed to make it more comfortable for a long time, and we can also see that there are no headphones built in either.
Although we do not have a good look at the back of the device, it is clear that there is a larger part behind the head that probably contains the computer and the battery of the device.
