Chinese augmented reality (AR) startup Nreal can be bringing its smart glasses to the U.K. this spring.
British mobile operator EE, which is owned by telecoms group BT, confirmed the news Tuesday, saying it has partnered with the Beijing-based company to “exclusively bring the Nreal Air AR glasses to the UK’s best network for 5G.”
Nreal Air AR glasses, that are designed to seem like sunglasses, offers users two different modes: “Air Casting” and “MR Space.” Air Casting allows users to observe movies on a 130-inch HD virtual display, while MR Space allows users to experience a “mixed reality” environment and a “tase of innovate AR technologies,” EE said in a press release.
Details on a release date of the product’s release or pricing remain unclear. EE said the glasses can be available “later this spring.”
“We’re delighted to enter the UK market in partnership with EE and we stay up for build up the AR ecosystem together. At Nreal, we’re obsessed with bringing AR into consumers’ on a regular basis lives, which is able to start a revolutionary transformation just as the web once did,” Nreal co-founder Peng Jin said in an announcement. “AR will transcend the present mobile experience, especially with regards to watching videos, exercising, and playing PC and cloud video games.”
