Earlier this year, TCL previewed its wearable display glasses at CES. The early prototype showcased a more modern and subtle design with USB-C port for connecting devices. Now the company is officially launching this technology to the market with the TCL NXTWEAR G wearable display glasses.
The TCL NXTWEAR G is designed to look like your everyday pair of shades but with dual screens integrated into the lens. Users can privately experience 1080p HD video through its Sony FHD Micro OLED panels. These are positioned to deliver “home theater proportions” with its 140-inch display and 16:9 aspect ratio.
Connecting is simple as plugging in a compatible smart device with a USB-C display-out port and the NXTWEAR G should be good to go. Interestingly, this device need not be charged so that’s one less thing to worry about.
The wearable display glasses support 3D 4K content and churn out audio with its built-in stereo speakers.
TCL says that the NXTWEAR G sport an “open-fit” design that allows users to still see some of their surroundings. For example, when wearing the glasses, users can still look down and see their hands to use their phones or maybe to type. The same goes when users lookup.
The TCL NXTWEAR G is designed to be a discreet device. Disguising itself as a regular pair of glasses, it’s made of soft-touch nylon and silica gel surrounded by a metallic frame. TCL assures a skin-friendly and comfortable fit. It also includes three adjustable nose pad sizes.
TCL has also equipped its wearable display with a multi-screen collaboration feature which brings seamless connectivity between TCL devices. Users will be able to continue their tasks from a phone to the NXTWEAR G and then a tablet or another compatible device should they need to. Additionally, Windows 10 can edit, share, and control their smartphone from the laptop screen. The multi-screen collaboration feature will be delivered to TCL devices through an over-the-air update and will initially roll out to TCL 20 Pro 5G smartphones.
The glasses go on sale in July.
