HoloLens 2 is expected to have an improved Holographic Processing Unit with more AI capabilities, and an improved Kinect-like depth camera. Microsoft is reportedly bringing development of the lenses internally to achieve this at a reasonable cost. HoloLens 2 will be powered by the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 processor or the Snapdragon 850 mobile platform, which was announced in June last year.
