Thanks to a new report from industry insider 9to5Google, the second iteration of 2017’s not-so-great Google Glass Enterprise Edition is in the works.
The report claims that the hardware would include updated specs and a USB-C port. The leaks also include some previously unseen early production pictures of the 2017 follow-up that have begun to surface on the web.
“The device apparently has a Snapdragon 710, an integrated LTE modem, support for Bluetooth 5.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi,” says Stephen Hall of 9to5Google. He continued by saying that “as for its camera, it supposedly has a 32MP sensor that does 4K video captured at 30FPS or 1080p at 120FPS. There’s also 3GB of RAM, and it apparently runs Android Oreo.”
Replacing the magnetic charging cable that was standard on previous edition of the Google Glass is a brand-new USB-C port. The new port is sure to add a lot of extra functionality to the Glass, letting users charge their Goggle Glass’ with the same cable they use for their phones or laptops.
While the previous iterations of the Google Glass weren’t exactly smash hits, it seems that Google is comfortable with selling the product to enterprise level customers instead of maintaining a focus on the daily consumer. Who knows, though future generations might lead to a more streamlined version that would be better suited for the average customer.
