Xreal’s Beam Pro brings android apps into the world of 3D

  • Xreal’s Beam Pro is the first AR device to seamlessly connect with the Play Store, letting users enjoy 3D content.
  • Beam Pro comes with dual 50-megapixel cameras and dual USB-C ports to charge the device and connect your Xreal glasses concurrently.

Beam Pro will upgrade the mobile Internet experience from 2D to 3D. With its affordable price, Beam Pro might be a turning point for AR technology to go mainstream. New AI devices, such as Beam Pro, could integrate with phones rather than replace them immediately. Over time, consumer habits will naturally shift, and AR glasses might become a replacement for mobile phones.

Why it’s important

Xreal notes that the Beam Pro is the first AR device to seamlessly connect with the Play Store, allowing users to enjoy a large amount of content in a 3d environment. Its affordable price embodies Xreal’s goal of making AR accessible to everyone.

“Beam Pro represents the transformation of spatial computing from concept to practical application, filling the gap in the market in terms of spatial computing content.” Xu Chi, founder and CEO of XREAL says. 

Beam Pro is powered by XREAL’s self-developed nebulaOS operating system, which is based on a new framework for spatial computing to provide a powerful spatial experience. With nebulaOS, Beam Pro is able to present mobile APP content in 3D space, enabling 2D to 3D conversion.

Unlike Meta having problems with app store fill, Xreal provides direct access to a large number of 3D apps in the Play store, putting them at the forefront of the AR app ecosystem. 

According to data from market research firm IDC, XREAL’s Air series AR glasses have a 43% share of the global consumer AR glasses market, and the Beam Pro and Air series glasses have a placement ratio of more than 70%. Global AR/VR device shipments are expected to grow by 46.4% in 2024, showing a strong upswing in the industry. With the launch of the new Beam Pro, XREAL is gradually building its own all-around spatial computing scenario, leading the future development of the AR field.
