It’s been long since the Hololens was teased by Microsoft. Over time, Microsoft has been constantly working on improving the Hololens. They have partnered with top companies in the industry to develop the Hololens. Microsoft has been posting all the updates and the latest improvements they have done over all this time.
Finally today we have the configuration for the Hololens.
- 32-bit Windows 10 system
- 64-bit Intel Atom x5-Z8100 processor, 1.04 GHz
- Dedicated video memory: 114 MB
- System Memory: 980 MB
- Run Memory: 2 GB
- Storage: 64 GB (54.09 GB available)
- Battery capacity: 16.5 Wh (probably enough for 2-3 hours)
- Camera resolution: 2.4 MP (2048 × 1152)
- Video Resolution: 1.1 MP (1408 × 792)
- Video Frame Rate: 30 FPS
It is worth noting that the Hololens does not require any PC to run and has some pretty decent specifications. According to the configuration, the OS seems to be Windows 10 according to the sources. Letting it sync in for a minute makes us realize that from the demo in the Youtube Video above, the Hololens is running a custom version of Windows 10 judging by its UI. Moreover, do also note that the OS version is 32 bit rather than 64 bit even though the CPU supports 64 bit.
Moreover, I wish Hololens was launched earlier. Google has also been working on the same objective for some time with Project Tango which allows you to do the same functions on a smartphone. A great example for this is Project Tango’s Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.
