The new version of the Xreal’s glasses, the Air 2, has had its price revealed in the lead-up to its launch.

Xreal, formerly known as Nreal, has revealed the pricing for its upcoming Air 2 glasses. The smart glasses feature two micro OLED panels inside, that can project up to a 330-inch screen in front of you.

The Air 2 also brings some major improvements in terms of color accuracy, as well as improved brightness and pixel density. Overall, the quality is much better on the device, and it’s slightly lighter too.

However, Xreal is splitting the Air 2 into two different versions. The regular Air 2 glasses bring the above improvements, but the Air 2 Pro glasses will allow you to dim the glasses themselves without the need for a plastic shield.

Xreal Air 2 price & release date unveiled

Xreal has priced the Air 2 at $399, while the Air 2 Pro will cost $449. An Air 2 bundle featuring the Beam puck, which allows for easier connectivity, will cost $499.

Both glasses are launching in November in the US, and should also be shipping out to the UK then too. Xreal recently updated their store with a new look, but the glasses should be widely available from Amazon and the like.

The AR glasses use a simple USB-C connection, and there’s actually no software onboard the Air glasses at all. When connected to a supported phone or the Beam, it’ll act as a very narrow field-of-view headset. This 72-degree field of view hasn’t been altered for the Air 2.

We came away from the original Xreal/Nreal Air glasses unimpressed but found a glimmer of hope within them. Keep it locked to our review section, as we’ll have more on the Xreal Air 2 very soon.
