TCL has announced its latest AR smart glass TCL RayNeo X2 to be launched for developers in just a couple of months, with a wider release later. The announcement indicates that TCL is preparing for AR to become a household technology, and they want to be a household name.

TCL is coming to Western markets

More commonly known for TVs in the west, TCL is bringing its stylish AR smart glasses to the west for developers to release AR applications and develop the ecosystem before launching to commercial markets. 

RayNeo X2 is designed for outdoor use

The new smart glass is called TCL RayNeo X2 and is designed for use outdoors with 1,000 nits brightness and a vivid 100,000:1 contrast ratio. For example, the AR glass can make your walking or biking navigation easier with its built-in SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) technology. 

Real-time language translation capabilities

While inside, you can use it in multi-cultural meetings with its real-time language translation or capture the moment instantly from its embedded camera in the middle of the RayNeo X2 smart glass.

What are TCLs ambitions for AR?

As Howie Li, CEO of TCL quotes: “The technology RayNeo has developed will set the bar for future innovations in wearable AR…”

In other words, TCL is gearing up for broader adoption of smart glasses in the west and is releasing its AR glass for developers. Howie again, “With the rollout of TCL RayNeo X2, we seek to build a vibrant, comprehensive AR ecosystem to provide our users with rich content and compelling services.”
