The puzzle surrounding the release of the next version of HoloLens has been on the move for months, but at least some of this puzzle could be resolved in the next few weeks.
In an invitation sent by Microsoft on Wednesday, Microsoft invites media members to an event at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. This is pretty normal for MWC, but striking is a name on the invitation: Alex Kipman, the inventor of HoloLens.
There's no confirmation of what the company will announce, but given the recent chatter in the HoloLens community With an upcoming release of HoloLens 2, it's very likely that the event will either provide new details for release or maybe even the first one View of the public mediates on the new device.
"Our pre-conference press conference will be moderated by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, CVP's Julia White, and Technical Fellow Alex Kipman," the invitation to the event said , which will take place on the 24th of February.
Is this the second coming of HoloLens that so many have been waiting for? Microsoft does not say so, but there's a great chance that we'll at least get more details, and maybe even a look at the device Microsoft wants to compete with its up-and-coming competitor Magic Leap and a number of other augmented reality devices to compete in the market.
