The portal says Apple is working on the mixed-reality headset and has quoted a person with direct knowledge of the device. The product is touted to come with ultra-high-resolution 8K display ability and eye-tracking technology. It is also expected to come with more than a dozen cameras. These will help capture the video of the real world and track the hand movements precisely.

It goes on to refer to an older report by Bloomberg that spoke of the device being made of mesh fabric in place of plastic in order to make it lightweight. The headset has been designed to work as a standalone device, which means it can operate on a cell instead of requiring support from any charging portal on the wall or a Mac. It was also reported that the headset will include a fan and come with a powerful processor.

The inclusion of a massive processor, fan and lightweight fabric, all point to a high-end price range and the report suggests it to be around $3,000.

The portal also shared a rendering of the Apple headset, which is reportedly based on the “internal Apple images of a late-stage prototype from last year”.
