As Magic Leap continues to spread its influence in the United States with the help of the wireless operator AT & T, the enhanced reality launch also appears in East Asia.
In May, Magic Leap announced a partnership with SK Telecom that will make the South Korean telecom giant the exclusive wireless partner of the AR company in the country.
"Magic Leap is very pleased that we cooperate with SK Telecom, because we create relationships with the world's leading telecom providers to develop the next generation of computers for people around the world," says Omar Khan, Product Manager at Magic Leap. in a statement on the company's website.
"SK Telecom develops 5G with extreme speed, stability and security and gives its customers the necessary framework to experience the power of the Magic Leap space platform."
As one of the three major wireless carriers in South Korea, SK Telecom's commitment to Magic Leap is on par with the start-up AT & T ratio in the United States, especially with regard to the 5G rollout in the region. Although China and Japan receive a lot of attention in terms of Asian technology trends, the fact that South Korea is usually listed in the top 10 in terms of the fastest mobile and fixed internet speeds on the planet.
From professional online gaming teams to regular smartphone owners, South Korean users are accustomed to the best in wireless service, so the Magic Leap agreement will give it a boost in entering the regular business and entertainment sphere of  Although there are no official product or service announcements related to the deal, just like the AT&T mating, the SK Telecom partnership will work to support accelerators, hacker and business solutions focusing on the Magic Leap platform.
In recent years, SK Telecom has shown great interest in immersive computing, both within VR and AR. In fact, the agreement with Magic Leap is so new that SK Telecom's 5G concept video, published a week ago, still uses a HoloLens (first generation) to show how AR collaboration in an office setting can work. Based on the new deal, we can probably look forward to new versions of the video (showing Magic Leap hardware instead) coming in the coming months.
