We already know that the HoloLens 2 will be shipped by Microsoft later this year, but despite all the information about the expiring device, we still do not know when the device will be available.
Now, on the Federal Communications Commission website, a new set of documents has surfaced that at least confirms that we probably will not have to wait much longer.
A collection of documents published on the FCC website on Friday refers to Microsoft's registration of a product that is "a wireless transceiver device using the IEEE 802.11a / b / g / n / ac MIMO radio 20/40/80 MHz bandwidth supported, [and] Bluetooth 5.0 "included. These specifications are consistent with what we already know about the HoloLens 2.
Another part of the document contains a diagram (below) that shows where legal information is placed on the device. And although the HoloLens is not specifically mentioned, the shape of the device is unmistakable.
Later in the collection of documents, Microsoft asks that information, including external photos, test setup photos, user manual, and internal photos, remain confidential. Confidentiality for the following Appendices by 19 January 2020.
"We request the Commission to provide short-term confidentiality for the following annexes by 19 January 2020," writes Microsoft Compliance Engineer Chaitrali Limaye. in a letter of June 6th.
Although the documents do not reveal the exact release date of the long-awaited HoloLens 2, there is now strong evidence that the device will arrive in the next few months. This type of FCC document usually pops up at least a few months before official publication of a product.
Nevertheless, Microsoft has been full of surprises lately. So do not be surprised if it's a device Available earlier than we think.
