At AWE 2024, XREAL announced a brand new mobile Android device called Beam Pro that serves as an accessory to XREAL AR glasses.  

The XREAM Beam Pro offers dual 3D cameras, allowing users to capture 3D videos. It was designed to allow AR glasses users to access the apps they want without draining their phone battery.

The XREAM Beam Pro looks a cheap mobile phone. Technically, it could be used like a phone if you get the 5G model, and is also cheap, but it’s first and foremost an XREAL glasses accessory. It features a familiar app layout that any Android user is familiar with and can be used to access to millions of 2d apps including those found on Google Play Store.


To use it, you simply plug XREAL AR Air glasses into one of the two USB-C ports and you’re good to start your 3DoF or 6DoF spatial environment sessions.

Connectivity: Wi-Fi-only | 5G
OS: 
Android 14 w/ NebulaOS
RAM: 
6GB | 8GB

Storage: 128GB | 256GB
Screen: 6.5-inch LCD 2K touchscreen
Cameras: Dual 50MP 3D cameras
Ports: 2x USB-C, microSD card reader
Battery: 27W fast charging

With the use of a completely separate, phone-like device, XREAL glasses users can still control the AR and VR apps they want without connecting to their phones. What’s more, some phone companies still weren’t utilizing USB connections that worked with XREAL glasses, but the Beam Pro works with all of them so you don’t have to worry about compatibility.

More than just screen mirroring, apps accessed with Beam Pro and XREAL glasses are presented in a “spatial canvas” where two apps can be open at once and positioned as desired either side-by-side within a 3D space.

This mobile device also features two USB-C ports to allow users to recharge the device while still having XREAL glasses plugged in. According to XREAL, it offers 27W fast charging to help keep the Beam Pro ready to go. One of the most interesting aspects of the Beam Pro is its dual 50MP 3D cameras which allow users to create 3D videos. But they capture at only 1080p, the good news is they do it at 60fps.

The Beam Pro also doubles as a controller. Simply wave it about to use it like a pointer that you’ll see behind your AR glasses. Simply wave it about to use it like a pointer that you’ll see behind your AR glasses or tap directly on the 6.5-inch 2K touchscreen to send commands.

When XREAL glasses are connected to the Beam Pro, users will be able to enjoy countless 2d apps but within a 3DoF or 6DoF spatial environment. As far as storage, there is the option for 6GB RAM with 125GB storage or 8GB RAM with 256GB storage (expandable via microSD). Beam Pro starts at $199 and comes in either a Wi-Fi-only model or a more expensive 5G model. Both models feature Qualcomm Snapdragon technologies processors (specifically a Snapdragon Spatial Companion Processor) and run Android 14 with a “custom spatial UI built on XREAL’s NebulaOS.”
