Huawei is getting into the smartglasses game after unveiling its new Eyewear specs designed for men and women.

Announced alongside its new Watch GT Elegant and Active Edition smartwatches, the glasses have been designed in collaboration with Korean sunglasses brand Gentle Monster.

The key feature here is using the built-in dual mics and speakers to make and take calls, access smart assistants and listen to your audio. There's no holographic display or cameras here, so they have more in common with Bose's smartglasses as opposed to North's Focals smartglasses or Snap Specs.

There's no buttons on the wearable at all with wearers simply needing to tap the side of the frames to wake the device up. Huawei says its included dual mics with beam-forming technologies, which will apparently reduce noise when you make a phone call. There's also dual speakers that are positioned to reduce sound leaks when you're listening to something loudly.

The glasses are IP67 rated water and dust resistant and are charged via a case that uses NFC contactless charging, which Huawei says is a world first.

That's about as much details we have on the new project right now. We managed to try a pair of the glasses on, but right now they're just the designs and not the fully functioning device. We don't have any pricing yet, but Huawei says it plans to launch the smart specs in July 2019, just in time to wear them out in the sunshine.
