Chinese augmented reality (AR) startup Nreal will bring its smart glasses to the UK this spring.
The British mobile operator EE, which is owned by the telecommunications group BT, confirmed the news on Tuesday, saying it has partnered with the Beijing-based company to “exclusively bring the Nreal Air AR glasses to the UK’s best network for 5G.”
Designed to look like sunglasses, Nreal Air AR glasses offer users two different modes: “Air Casting” and “MR Space.” Air Casting allows users to watch movies on a 130-inch HD virtual screen, while MR Space allows users to experience a “mixed reality” environment and a “bitch of innovative AR technologies,” EE said in a press release. .
Details of a release date for the product release or pricing remain unclear. EE said the glasses will be available “later this spring.”

At Nreal, we are passionate about bringing AR into consumers’ everyday lives, which will launch a revolutionary transformation just like the Internet once did, “Nreal co-founder Peng Jin said in a statement. “AR will transcend the current mobile experience, especially when it comes to watching videos, training and playing PC and cloud video games.”
