The idea behind the Glasses T1 is to serve as a more personal secondary screen that can fit in your pocket and doesn’t require any complex processing or battery hardware to go with it. Lenovo hasn’t explained how far the app compatibility goes for casting apps from different software platforms but says it will work with the Ready For platform offered with Motorola phones and Lenovo computers.
Ready For is Lenovo’s take on Samsung’s DeX, letting users view their phone’s screen on a larger display. Users can also pair accessories like a keyboard to get serious work done on the larger connected screen. From gaming to streaming Netflix, Ready For is said to handle everything you can do on your phone’s screen, and by that extension, on the Glasses T1, too.
Instead of focusing on the smart side of the glasses here, Lenovo has paid more attention to the practical utility and convenience aspects. The nose clips are swappable and you can also adjust the temple arm position for maximum comfort. The screen comes with TUV certification for cutting down blue light exposure, which definitely comes in handy because of the direct exposure from lenses in close proximity to the eyes. The retail package also comes with frames that can take prescription lenses. There is no word on the pricing yet, but it will be announced once the Glasses T1 goes on sale in China later this year, and in select overseas markets in 2023.
