At its launch event for Huawei P30 Pro, the company announced that it will partner with Korean fashion brand Gentle Monster to launch its first smart glasses.
Gentle Monster is a luxury eyewear company that is popular throughout Asia. Known for their experimental design, their showrooms are more like the art galleries, which were shown by CEO Hankook Kim on stage when he presented the smart glasses. Kim also made some shade on Snapchat Spectacles and asked, "How many people want to use this when we meet our friends or lovers?" The glasses do not have cameras either, which allows them to look more like normal sunglasses. It is an intelligent choice on the part of Huawei that puts a great emphasis on fashion.
Users can touch the temple of glasses to answer calls through dual microphones and speakers, as well as access the voice assistant. The glasses are IP67 water and dust resistant, and can be charged wirelessly through the box containing the glasses, which has a 2,200 mAh battery, or through the USB-C port.
