Android Smartphone Compatibility

Nreal Glasses are primarily made for Android-powered smartphones. The glasses need to be used with a smartphone in order to make them lighter while maintaining the AR capabilities.

AR Space

Installing the Nebula app on a compatible smartphone will allow you to access the AR Space.

In AR Space, you can fix up to five mobile screens in the air and have access to futuristic AR apps. Be aware that apps must be developed using Nreal’s NRSDK in order to be used in the AR space. Please install the apps that were suggested in the Lab.

Air Casting, also referred to as screen mirroring, is another option available in Nebula.

Screen Mirroring

After plugging in the Nreal glasses, you can use your smartphone to mirror your screen if it supports DP Alt Mode but isn’t compatible.

Some smartphones that support desktop mode can be used with the glasses to simulate a PC, such as the Samsung DeX and LG Screen+.

:pushpin: "OnePlus 9/9 Pro and 9 RT cannot use the AR Space with a Nreal Air if their operating system is more recent than ColorOS12.1 (model number_11_C.65). We advise against upgrading. Downgrading the OS is an option. Nreal Light will be alright."
