In case you are not aware yet, TCL actually made a wearable display glasses called the NXTWEAR G and if you are here living in Australia, the good news is that the TCL NXTWEAR G Wearable Display Glasses is now available to grab for AU$899.
Unlike Google Glass, you actually use the TCL smart glasses to consume content, like a projector being projected right in front of your eyes. It does this by connecting to your device through USB Type-C with Display Port cable.
And it also has a dual built-in speakers, so you can experience that immersive viewing or gaming while you put your phone or tablet away!
TCL NXTWEAR G Glasses is powered by a Micro OLED display with 1080p resolution when viewing content with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 47-degree field of view on dual screens. It also has a refresh rate of 60Hz which is pretty smooth.
It’s equipped with a few smart sensors: an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a compass, and a P sensor for you to interact with the controls just by using your head. With a simple rotation of the head, the user can switch between screens easily.
According to Joseph Corrente, Channel Manager for TCL Communication Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific Islands, the TCL NXTWEAR G “emulates a 140-inch screen right before your eyes”. I definitely like the idea that you can just wear this while commuting on the train, slouch on the seat, and watch your favourite shows without anyone peeking over your shoulders. Sure, it’d probably attract a lot of attention – until more people know about the smart glasses, but eh, you might not care.
But it’s definitely great for watching those movies without holding your phone for a number of hours.
The wearable is compatible with any devices (phones, tablets, laptops, etc) that support USB Type-C with DisplayPort Alternate Mode.
TCL NXTWEAR G Glasses is available now at Harvey Norman for AU$899 and comes with a bonus 6 months subscription of OPTUS SPORT with every purchase. We’re not sure yet about acquiring a review unit but will certainly keep you posted.
