According to Ming-chi Kuo, the AR headset will have two processors. One of the processors will be having the same level of computing power just as the M1 and the second on the other hand will be a lower-end chip that will help to handle input from the various sensors. The analyst says that the headset has at least 6-8 optical modules that will help o simultaneously provide continuous video see-through AR services.
The headset is also rumored to have two 4K OLED microdisplays from Sony. Analyst Kuo also cited the device’s mac-level computing power for its ability to be operated and accessed untethered and also its wide compass of applications as one of the factors that makes it so different from its competitors.

What Analyst Ming-Chi Kup Thinks About the Device Being Independent
Analyst Kuo however still believes that the device will be a standalone one, writing that “if the AR headset is positioned only as an accessory for the Mac or iPhone, it will not be conducive to the growth of the product. An AR headset that works independently means that it will have its own ecosystem and provide the most complete and flexible user experience.”
