TCL Smart Glasses – Each NXTWEAR G lens has an FHD Micro OLED panel from Sony and provides an experience similar to viewing a 140-inch screen from 4 meters away.
TCL has opened up to enter the realm of smart glasses with the launch of NXTWEAR. The smart glasses launched at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2021 are not integrated with the built-in AI assistant, nor are they Mixed Reality glasses like Microsoft HoloLens.
The smart glasses made by TCL work by connecting to a phone, computer or tablet; and serves as a screen. You could say this is similar to a PlayStation VR headset connected to a smart device. The NXTWEAR G has no internals, so the user’s phone or PC provides the power.
Reporting from Gizmochina (June 25), each NXTWEAR G lens has an FHD Micro OLED panel from Sony and provides an experience similar to watching a 140-inch screen from 4 meters away. TCL says the screen will follow the user’s movements, allowing him to move freely. There are also stereo speakers integrated into the glasses.
This device has an aspect ratio of 16:9, a field of view of 47 degrees, and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The NXTWEAR G also features an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and proximity sensor. Smart glasses work with smartphones, notebooks, and computers with DisplayPort Alternate Mode.
The NXTWEAR G weighs in at 100 grams, and the integrated USB-C cable adds another 30 grams. There is no information on the price yet, but the sales package will include 3 nose pads, a frame for corrective lenses, a cleaning cloth, and a carrying case.
