On the street it is said that Apple is working on augmented reality-based smart glasses. Exactly when this will be released remains to be seen, but it seems that Apple may be working on getting suppliers for their device, and a new report claims that Apple sees Sony as one of them.

According to Japanese publication Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Apple and Sony are holding talks in which Apple hopes Sony can supply them with their OLED microdisplays for use in their AR smart glasses. This has since been confirmed by display industry analyst Ross Young, whose sources have told him the same thing.

While Apple has sourced displays from Samsung and LG for displays on other products like iPhones, sourcing from Sony seems a bit strange. It seems, however, that Sony OLED microdisplays are considered "cutting edge", with an ultra-fast response rate, extremely high contrast and a wider color gamut that should contribute to more precise color reproduction, all of which could be of crucial importance to the rumored smart Making glasses a success.

Apple wouldn't be the first to try to launch such a device. We have seen similar efforts in the past from other companies like Google, although those efforts have somehow failed. Will Apple succeed where others don't? We have to wait and see.
