The smart glasses pack a simpler structure technology, enabled to create a compact display with individual pixels sized at 4μm.

When you take pictures on the 5MP camera on Xiaomi Smart Glasses, you won't be able to see it in color as it uses a monochrome display solution "to allow sufficient light to pass through complicated optical structures. This pair of smart glasses also use MicroLED imaging technology. To note, this technology has higher brightness and a longer lifespan than OLED.

"The refraction process involves bouncing light beams countless times, allowing the human eye to see a complete image, and greatly increasing usability while wearing. All this is done inside a single lens, instead of using complicated multiples lens systems, mirrors, or half mirrors as some other products do," Xiaomi says while unveiling the new smart glasses.
