With market-leading technology, a cross-device SDK, and an open ecosystem, the Snapdragon Spaces platform enables developers to realise the full potential of wearable AR. In order to empower developers to create cutting-edge experiences that will guide the development of the following generation of immersive technology, it intends to create an open XR ecosystem.
The first smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Spaces support is the OnePlus 11 5G. It is the starting point for developers who want to explore the full potential of wearable AR and bring their XR ideas to life. With the OnePlus 11, developers can now create immersive experiences for AR glasses that adapt to any situation and change how we interact with the environments around us.
