Microsoft revealed its HoloLens 2 at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, and now we know when we'll be able to get our hands on it. During a speech at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai, executive vice president Harry Shum revealed that its next-generation augmented reality headsets goes on sale in September, Reuters reported.

The updated HoloLens is available to preorder for $3,500 (about £2,700 or AU$4,900), and comes four years after the original version. The new one is more comfortable, and has a greater field of view and better eye and hand tracking, according to CNET's Ian Sherr and Scott Stein.

Microsoft didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
