Chinese electronics manufacturer TCL has launched its NXTWEAR G Smart glasses. Teased at CES 2021 in January, the TCL NXTWEAR G combines dual Sony micro OLED screens with portability, plug-and-play functionality, and a stylish, comfortable design. Additionally, TCL also launched its new cross-device Multi-Screen Collaboration feature across select lines. The feature delivers seamless productivity across several product categories, including select TCL Mobile devices and compatible, laptops, tablets and televisions.

Aaron Zhang, CEO at TCL Communication, said: “With TCL’s expertise in Display Greatness, now is the perfect time to challenge the established, disconnected, single-screen scenario across price points. In the premium space, NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses become an extension of your smart device and transport you to a private viewing party wherever you are. Looking at its broader portfolio, TCL’s accessibly priced high-end devices, including the TCL 20 Pro 5G, will provide even more value in the coming months, with rich Multi-Screen Collaboration rolling out in future software updates.”

TCL NXTWEAR G

Experience smart vision with TCL NXTWEAR G Wearable Display Glasses, a portable cinema for movie lovers, an immersive world for gamers, or a private space at home, work, or on your commute. Combining a sophisticated, foldable frameless design with a comfortable fit, NXTWEAR G showcases a stylish, reflective deep black exterior and a high-end look and feel.

Convenient and compact, NXTWEAR G is protected by a capsule case that fits in a small backpack or large handbag. No charging is required; the grab-and-go glasses are plug-and-play, so can be powered by your compatible laptop, tablet or smartphone. This creates a unique, fuss-free watching environment when matched with technology you already own, the company said in a press release.

The dual 1080p high-definition Sony FHD Micro OLED panels are perfectly positioned to deliver home theatre proportions, as NXTWEAR G emulates a 140-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

With a visual experience supporting 3D 4K content integrated with stereo speakers, cinema scores and gameplay are brought to life as you lose yourself in sensory immersion.

The streamlined, reflective deep black exterior of the TCL NXTWEAR G is set against soft-touch nylon and silica gel – carefully selected materials surrounding a metallic frame, creating a comfortable, skin-friendly fit and feel that’s also durable. Inside its carry case are with three adjustable nose pad sizes to cater to every face shape as well as a lens adapter for a clear viewing experience no matter what your prescription might be.

The NXTWEAR G’s open-fit design maintains a degree of peripheral vision, so you can shift your gaze down to glance at your fingers typing on a keyboard or look up to greet a flight attendant offering you an in-flight beverage.

Worn exactly like a traditional pair of glasses, there are no overhead straps to mess up your hair, batteries that need charging, or slots for you to slide a smartphone into with NXTWEAR G. You also don’t need an app; simply connect the glasses to any smart device with a compatible USB-C display-out port and put them on for a fantastic visual experience.

NXTWEAR G is compatible with more than 100 smartphones, hybrid two-in-one devices, and laptops from all major manufacturers, and will be available to buy in Australia beginning next month, with market availability to follow in select regions.

Multi-Screen Collaboration

TCL’s Multi-Screen vision starts with whatever device you have on you. As an example, when you’re traveling for work, you walk to the train station and buy tickets using contactless payments on your phone, streaming music over 5G as you go. Once in your seat, hand-off from your TCL 20 Pro 5G to a cinematic wearable, the NXTWEAR G, as a portable big-screen experience transports you instantly while you rest and recharge.

Multi-Screen Collaboration will be supported across a range of product lines, rolling out initially to TCL 20 Pro 5G smartphones through an over-the-air software update.
