- Chinese tech firm Xreal has recently introduced its latest augmented reality (AR) glasses, the Xreal Air 2 and Xreal Air 2 Pro.
- With the Xreal Air 2 starting at $399 and the Air 2 Pro priced at $449, Xreal is making strides in providing accessible AR technology.
LONDON, Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — XREAL (formerly “Nreal”) today announced its next generation of AR glasses are available for pre-order in the UK. XREAL Air 2 and XREAL Air 2 Pro AR glasses bring augmented reality (AR) to everyone. As the market leader in AR glasses today, XREAL is thrilled to bring the XREAL Air 2 series to the UK and welcome the UK to the era of wearable displays.
XREAL Air 2 series AR glasses give people a large virtual screen experience of up to 330-inches, transforming how they enjoy video games, movies, and TV at home, or on the go. Featuring the latest Micro-OLED displays, the new XREAL Air 2 series is 10% lighter and 10% thinner than the previous generation, with a higher pixel density and improved brightness and color reproduction, giving people the most comfortable and visually stunning AR experience XREAL has ever produced. Other new features include an improved audio and microphone system, and one-touch immersion control using XREAL Electromagnetic Dimming (Air 2 Pro only).
XREAL Air 2 series glasses invite the wearer to express their own style, and are available in two sleek colorways – Graphite Gray and the all new Carmine Red. The XREAL Air 2 series also debuts the fun and fashion-forward XREAL Kaleido Kit.
“At XREAL, we believe augmented reality holds the promise of a paradigm shift for how people interact with technology,” said Peng Jin, XREAL Co-Founder. “We believe the era of wearable displays is here. Over the past four decades, the methods in which people have interacted with technology have evolved to allow us to put stereos, record players, telephones, high-powered computers and small screen entertainment in our pockets.”
“XREAL AR glasses first allowed the world to put big screen TVs, theater-quality projectors and full HD monitors in our pockets, transforming what entertainment and productivity can look and feel like on the go and at home for extended sessions. We’ve found that 50-60% of our customers spend between one and three hours every time they use XREAL AR glasses. These longer engagements drove our decision to focus on comfort and wearability for XREAL Air 2, while maintaining superior display and fidelity.”
