World’s First Titanium AR Glasses

Xreal Air 2 Ultra 

At the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2024, held from 9th to 12th January at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, XREAL, formally known as Nreal, the largest consumer AR glasses company, introduced the new addition to their Air Series Augmented Reality in the form of XREAL Air 2 Ultra. The AR sunglasses boast dual 3D environment sensors equipped with computer vision capabilities that aid in transforming physical objects into digital items for apps. Available at an exorbitant price tag of $699 (INR 57,966), XREAL’s Air 2 Ultra AR Glasses claim to be a budget-friendly alternative to Apple Vision Pro($3,500) and Meta Quest 3 ($649.99). The company pitches Air 2 Ultra as a full-fledged “spatial-computing” device similar to its previous Light Mixed Reality device. This read will analyse XREAL Air 2 Ultra AR Glasses based on various factors. Let’s tackle them one by one below: 

Titanium AR Glasses For 3D App Building

At CES 2024, XREAL showcased how its AIR 2 Ultra AR glasses exactly work. The audience was stupefied by the experience of how these AR glasses can metamorphose 2D applications into fully immersive 3D settings and setups that visitors to the CSE 2024 and XREAL booth can play around with and test the product. While using these glasses, users would see apps and widgets that can also be moved. This allows users to multitask on different apps simultaneously. 


Speaking of its design, XREAL Air 2 Ultra looks like a normal summer sunglasses integrated with AR capabilities. It weighs 80g and is designed with weight distribution; it comes with adjustable temples offering three positions and three nose pad options. The multiple options allow users to customise the glasses for the right fit. The company claims these glasses to be the “world’s first titanium AR glasses,” as they’re equipped with a Micro OLED panel from Sony. To enhance users’ viewing experience, the glasses get a full HD screen for each eye with a field of view of 52 degrees and 42 pixels per degree. These elements are expected to be higher than Apple Vision Pro. 


The XReal AR glasses come with a pair of 0.55-inch Sony micro-OLED displays with a 1080p resolution and a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. The company has not left any stone unturned to enhance the users’ experience; thus, you can plug the USB-C cable into any smartphone, laptop, or gadget that supports DisplayPort (DP) output (USB Type C Alt Mode).  The virtual display imitates a 130-inch screen a few feet away, although the aspect ratio depends upon the attached device. Additionally, XReal Pro glasses are solid, and you will surely smitten with the 120-Hz refresh rate if you’re gaming with a smartphone 

Turns Object From Physical To Digital

Having a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and a peak brightness of 500 nits, XREAL claims that the images look crisp and vibrant in various lighting conditions. These AR glasses also feature an audio system similar to the one used in cinema and directional audio technology, which aids in reducing sound disturbance. XREAL boasts many other advanced features like image tracking, hand-tracking, plane detection, depth meshing, spatial anchor, etc. 

Battery & Charging

Xreal Air AR Glasses do not come with an internal battery; rather, they’re plugged straight into your smartphone without the ability to operate wirelessly. However, without their own battery, these glasses will significantly drain the battery life of the device you connect to. A beam adapter will be worth your use as it can spare the phone from battery drainage. 

XREAL Air 2 Ultra has 3D environment sensors


Xreal AR glasses are a boon for those who want to boost their productivity without having the need for additional physical screens. The company has taken care of every aspect of the technology that will enhance the users’ experience while using these glasses. Representing the physical world in the 3D virtual form, these glasses are what you must try your hands on. Currently, Xreal AR glasses are not available in India, but soon they will roll out. Speaking of the price, $699 (INR 57,966) could be expensive for some people, but it may be worth the price.
