The Chinese AR company Nreal has released a new smart glasses for the Asian market. The Nreal Air has a micro-OLED screen that hangs in front of the glasses. That AR screen has a field of view of 46 degrees and a refresh rate of 90Hz.
The 46-degree field of view, according to Nreal, would be comparable to a 130-inch screen when viewed from three meters. The built-in screen can also be adjusted to three viewing angles. There is no motion tracking and there are no built-in cameras or microphones.
The AR screen can display video and phone apps, according to The Verge, and it will be possible to watch the same content with multiple Air glasses. How the user interface is designed is not yet clear. The Air glasses weigh 77 grams and can work with both Android and iOS devices.
Nreal mainly focuses on media consumption with the Air glasses. A spokesperson for Nreal told Engadget that the company expects that most of the video will be watched by consumers. “The other users will mainly be developers who work with the glasses”, it sounds.
The Nreal Air will be released in Japan, China and South Korea at the end of this year. The price is unknown for now and it is unclear whether the AR glasses will be sold in the United States or Europe. Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom have already sold Nreal AR glasses on the European market. That’s the Nreal Light. These wired glasses have two built-in cameras, support 5G and only work with Android phones.
