Nreal’s AR sunglasses cost $499 and should ship in ‘limited quantities’ this year

Nreal's Augmented Reality Glasses – Although we were impressed with us at CES in January – it should start shipping this year with a surprisingly low $ 499 cost. Nreal Light glasses will be connected to the Snapdragon 855-based smartphone via USB-C, and Nreal will be available to consumers in "limited quantities" later this year and promise to be available in volume next year. The $ 1,199 kit for developers includes a dedicated computing pack that can be used in place of glasses, controllers, and phones.

Nreal Light glasses provide an experience between head-up display and full-fledged high-performance display. Final Mixed Reality – Typical glasses such as kind. Not only can you view your video through a virtual screen, you can also place virtual objects around and explore the real world.

Nreal is one of the earliest headset makers. QUALCOMM's XR certification program is designed to take advantage of 5G network speeds to deliver high quality streaming of games, software or video to AR glasses. China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Softbank Corp. in Japan, LG Uplus in Korea and Swisscom in Switzerland.

We were fans of the Nreal glasses that debuted at CES – colleague Nick Statt had a remarkably high visual quality for competing and inconspicuous devices, but it was competitive (and much more expensive) for Magic Leap One and Microsoft HoloLens headset as well as tracking and spatial mapping. Nreal says it has since improved the suitability of glasses and added a number of unspecified color choices.

Nreal does not necessarily have to buy Nreal Light when it actually starts selling. The 5G network and AR are firmly in place in early early adopter areas, and $ 499 is cheaper for smart glasses, but still expensive for niche products. Nonetheless, when it is launched in 2019, it will be a good signal for Qualcomm's XR platform. At the time of release, we will try to verify the finished product directly.
