Facebook Meta Smartwatch may have a detachable, rotatable display with up to three cameras. |
Last year, Facebook(Meta) was reported to be working on its first smartwatch. The smartwatch was touted to go official in the Summer of 2022, however, there wasn’t any explicit info about the smartwatch apart from the late 2021’s leaked image shared by Bloomberg. Now, LetsGoDigital has spilled some beans on the upcoming Facebook Meta smartwatch revealing its models and key features.
The report reveals that the Facebook smartwatch a.k.a Meta watch will arrive in two models – a circular and a squarish model. The display on both watches will be detachable. The circular watch will have two or a max of three cameras. These sensors are touted to be a telephoto lens, an optical zoom or an ultra-wide sensor, and a macro lens.
Interestingly, it will have a rotatable display. Rotating the screen will let users select any one camera out of the three/two. As per the report, while rotating, the camera that is set at 12’o clock will be in use while the rest of the lenses will be turned off.
It will let users take pictures and post them directly to Meta’s own social apps like Instagram and Facebook. The camera can also be used for video calls. Furthermore, it is revealed that Meta could be employing these camera sensors to implement AR/VR and mixed reality.
Apart from the rumored smartwatch, Meta is also expected to launch AR headset and AR glasses soon. The detachable display smartwatch will be a part of Meta’s upcoming ecosystem of devices which the company plans to launch later this year.
As of now, the information about its other devices is unknown. However, we do know that the upcoming AR glasses are codenamed ‘Project Nazare’ and the AR headset is codenamed, ‘Project Cambria’.
