SHENZHEN, Nov. 6 – After Snap Inc. lost nearly $ 40 million (166.7 million RM) of unmarketted first-generation glasses for couples, China's technology giant Tencent has developed its own version that looks very similar.

Last week, China's largest technology company discovered Weishi's smart-glasses – a pair of smart-equipped camera-cameras that are very similar to Snap Inc. smart glasses for design – which clearly indicates that the company.

However, the company, which is currently Snap's largest investor Tencent, said Verge that weishi smart specs are on the way to the market. Technical writer Matthew Brennan was able to capture some images:

First-generation glasses lost $ 40 million in unsold pockets, but did not stop the development of the second-generation traditional design, as well as third-generation software and hardware.

Snap commitments seem to have inspired their Chinese counterpart. Tencent is a marketing spectacle that will be used with a short video app Weishi – a competitor to Tok Tokyo, previously known as Musical.ly. – and the glasses share their name with the app.

The camera is 8MP with two HD resolutions: 720p or 1080p. Weishi glasses can be picked up remotely and in different modes, as well as live streaming and uploading everything through the Weishi app.

Weishi glasses will be available on November 11th. An additional app is already displayed in the Apple App Store. – AFP-Relaxnews
