CES 2024: TCL RayNeo X2 Lite AR Glasses Are the Opposite of the Apple Vision Pro Check out our complete coverage of CES 2024

From www.pcmag.com

LAS VEGAS—TCL claims its next-generation AR smart glasses, which it debited at CES, will be an ideal companion for “tech-savvy business professionals, frequent jet-setters, and adventurous travelers.” The TCL RayNeo X2 Lite are half the weight of the RayNeo X2 at just 2.17 ounces. The glasses feature aerospace-grade and skin-friendly materials and an adjustable nosepad for all-day comfort. More importantly, TCL says those savvy business pros will be able to use them all day long thanks to boosted battery life. These travel-friendly AR glasses are the antithesis of Apple’s large and heavy Vision Pro headset, which will require people to stay in one place and last only a few hours per charge.

The RayNeo X2 Lite feature binocular full-color microLED technology capable of displaying 3D content at 1,500 nits-to-eye at a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels. Specs include the Qualcomm Snapdragon AR1 Gen 1 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 12MP camera capable of capturing 1080p video at 30fps. Connectivity includes Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E, and sensors on board number three mics, two speakers, and an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, magnetometer, and touch. TCL says the projectors measure less than 1cm, which helps keep the glasses light, with one embedded in each stem of the glasses. The bright projection ensures visibility even under direct sunlight and the 30-degree field of view means information is spread across more of the wearer’s eyesight.

Combined, the embedded technical aspects give the RayNeo X2 Lite the power to support an on-board assistant, capture photos and video, view live translations, and display enhanced navigation on the lenses when out and about.

TCL says the all-on-one AI assistant includes a 3D avatar ChatBot. It can handle questions, respond with audio or captions, and provide notifications for incoming calls, messages, and calendar appointments. Users can slide their finger across the frame to take photos or video, record point-of-view videos hands-free, and use the Glasspedia personal encyclopedia for object recognition. The RayNeo supports facial-tracking live translations for multiple languages. The translations appear as text on the display. Optical character recognition will allow wearers to view translations of text that falls within the camera’s view, such as street signs or menu items. Last, the glasses can serve as a personal head-up display and blend 3D navigation on the display with your real-world surroundings to guide you directly from Point A to Point B.

All these features are still under development, according to TCL. It expects the RayNeo X2 Lite to reach the market during the third quarter of 2024. TCL did not share details on pricing.
