The company showcased the device in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The HoloLens 2 has a field of view that's more than double of the first-generation HoloLens. The device is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 850.

HoloLens 2 contains eye-tracking sensors that make interacting with holograms even more natural.

The new dial-in fit system makes the headset comfortable to wear for longer periods. (IANS)
