"AWE 2024 is the perfect backdrop for us to reveal XREAL Beam Pro globally, a groundbreaking mobile device that gives everyone the chance to create their own stunning spatial video content, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a full range of popular entertainment and gaming platforms when paired with the world's best-selling AR glasses," commented Chi Xu, Founder and CEO of XREAL. "For XREAL Beam Pro we chose a uniquely simple design that features a familiar Android mobile experience to open the door to a new world of spatial computing that everyone can enjoy. Working with companies including Qualcomm Technologies, NVIDIA and others, we see the mobile internet evolving to the spatial internet and foresee XREAL Beam Pro plus XREAL glasses becoming one of the most powerful AR solutions to explore millions of apps in 3D space."

XREAL Beam Pro: Make it spatial

Utilizing a custom spatial UI built on XREAL's NebulaOS, XREAL Beam Pro makes it easy to enjoy millions of 2D apps in an optimized 3DoF or 6DoF spatial environment by connecting to XREAL's AR glasses. The UI breaks beyond simple screen mirroring, presenting users with access to mobile apps in a spatial canvas where up to two apps can be opened, positioned side-by-side in a notebook array and placed in 3D space. Navigation and control of the spatial canvas happens by simply using XREAL Beam Pro as a pointer and touchpad.

To add more control and further enhance the experience, the virtual screen can be fixed in position using XREAL's Body Anchor mode, popularized with the first generation XREAL Beam. Alternatively, users can select Smooth Follow mode to keep the content in front of their eyes and in gentle sync with the movement of their head.

XREAL Air, Air 2 and Air 2 Pro glasses offer a 3DoF environment out of the box when paired with XREAL Beam Pro, while XREAL Air 2 Ultra offers a 6DoF environment out of the box when paired with XREAL Beam Pro thanks to XREAL Air 2 Ultra's advanced dual 3D environment sensors.

Designed to create as well as enjoy spatial content, XREAL Beam Pro features dual 50MP 3D cameras, allowing users to create stunning spatial videos of all their favorite moments. The cameras support video recording at 1080p at a stunning 60fps, a significant leap in quality compared with competing, less affordable devices on the market which remain limited to 1080p at 30fps. All recorded spatial video content from XREAL Beam Pro can be re-lived and enjoyed on a massive virtual screen and in 3D, offering a magical way to enjoy any scene.
