Meta and Ray-Ban have unveiled their latest smart glasses, aptly named the Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses. Unlike their predecessor, these smart glasses are not just about sharing stories but are designed for practical everyday use, blending fashion with functionality.
One of the key features of these smart glasses is their impressive audio system, boasting a 50% increase in volume and enhanced bass. Equipped with five microphones, including one on the nose bridge, they ensure crystal-clear voice calls.
Moreover, they offer a camera feature, capable of capturing 12-megapixel photos and 1080p videos. With 32 GB of internal storage, you can store approximately 500 photos and 100 short videos, all effortlessly synchronized through the Meta View app, which also facilitates easy sharing on social media platforms.
These smart glasses introduce hands-free live streaming to Facebook and Instagram, enabling you to share your experiences with just a few taps. A discreet white light around the lens indicates when you're recording. Meta positions these glasses not just as a communication tool but as a creative companion, allowing you to engage in various activities while capturing the moment.
The glasses come in classic Wayfarer and the new Headliner styles, offering a range of colors and lens options to suit your style. Powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 processor, they promise four to six hours of active use on a single charge, with the included case providing an additional eight charges.
The Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses are available for pre-order now in the US, with prices starting at $299, and will be available for purchase on October 17.
