LG Uplus announced on Feb. 27 that it will develop augmented reality (AR) collaboration solutions based on 5G (5G) communications by partnering with a group of foreign companies including Spatial, a U.S. startup that develops an AR collaboration platform, Nreal, an AR device producer, and Qualcomm.
The global partnership is intended to develop an AR remote collaboration platform and enter the global AR market. It also includes overseas telecommunication giants such as KDDI and Deutsche Telecom.
Through this partnership, LG Uplus will combine the strengths of each company's technology and services, and upgrade its services to allow its customers to meet and talk in AR space from afar and share and enjoy various types of content in real time through augmented reality.
The combination of Spatial's software, which runs on diverse devices, and Nreal's AR device with wide viewing angles and light weight is expected to provide customers with optimized AR experiences on 5G networks.
By using 5G networks and smartphones loaded with Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets, LG Uplus will be able to provide an optimal system for collaborating in virtual space anytime and anywhere.
