Xreal announces that it has sold 350,000 display glasses to date.
“Today we celebrate a major milestone on our journey to bring AR wearable displays to everyone around the world, revolutionizing how people experience everything from video games to movies and TV, in-car entertainment and displays, and how they work at their desks or on the go,” said Chi Xu, founder, and CEO at Xreal.
Xreal (formerly: Nreal) specializes in wearables that look like sunglasses and project a large screen in front of you.
Xreal has launched the following products to date:
- 2019: Nreal Light
- 2022: Xreal Air
- 2023: Xreal Air 2 and Xreal Air 2 Pro
The current models can be connected to game consoles, handhelds, smartphones, PCs and Macs; in some cases and for optimal results, the separately available Xreal Beam accessory is required. The resolution is FullHD and the field of view is 46 degrees.
Xreal Air 2 and Xreal Air 2 Pro are available in the United States, Europe and Asia, and will come to other countries in 2024. The difference between Xreal Air 2 and Xreal Air 2 Pro is that the latter has a built-in light dimmer.

Smart glasses, whether with or without a display, are still a niche market. The fact that Xreal was able to sell 350,000 units is a remarkable achievement in this nascent market, even if the category is far from mainstream.
