Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses with Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 Platform announced

Meta has unveiled its latest Ray-Ban smart glasses, created in partnership with EssilorLuxottica, at the Connect 2023 event alongside the Meta Quest 3.

These new smart glasses have been completely redesigned based on community feedback. They are now lighter and more comfortable. You can get them in the classic Wayfarer style or the new Headliner design, both in Matte Black and Shiny Black.

They also offer three transparent frame colors in Jeans, Rebel Black, and Caramel. With more than 150 frame and lens combinations on the Ray-Ban Remix platform, you can personalize them on ray-ban.com. They can also be fitted with prescription lenses.

The new Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses feature custom-designed speakers with better bass and audio quality. The five-microphone array is designed for better audio recording during videos.

They come with a 12 MP camera for improved photo and video quality, which you can easily share with a voice command. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon AR1 Gen1 Platform, these glasses offer faster processing and come with a sleek charging case with extended battery life up to 36 hours.

They are now water-resistant (IPX4), have an improved touchpad, and allow livestreaming to Facebook or Instagram with real-time comments. These glasses are integrated with Meta AI, which you can control with your voice by saying “Hey Meta” for various tasks.
