Qualcomm has announced that tech titans Samsung and Google are set to use its newly designed computing chip, the Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2, in their upcoming mixed and virtual reality headsets.

This chip is no ordinary chip, it's designed to handle data feeds from a dozen cameras inside the headset, promising a more engaging and interactive virtual reality experience.

The move comes as the competition in the mixed-reality headset market is set to intensify. These headsets, which offer a view of the outside world through cameras, are becoming the new battleground for tech giants.

Apple, for example, is gearing up to release its Vision Pro headset. According to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone maker's headset could hit the shelves later this month or in early February. The Vision Pro, priced at a hefty $3,500, uses the same custom-designed chip as some of Apple's laptops, indicating the high stakes in this emerging market.

While Google and Samsung have not yet revealed the specific products that will utilise the new Qualcomm chip, it's clear that they're betting on this technology to power their next generation of mixed and virtual reality devices.

So, whether you're a property professional looking to offer virtual tours or a business owner exploring new tech, keep your eyes peeled for these exciting developments in the mixed-reality headset market!
