Google may have stopped selling its smart glasses, but that doesn’t mean it has abandoned the device altogether. The fancy wearable is now part of the search giant’s Project Aura, which has yet to announce something new.
Thanks to the FCC, we get to see how the Glass Enterprise Edition will look. From what we can tell, it resembles its predecessor with few differences here and there. For instance, the headset now features a hinge on the right side so the glasses can be folded up without taking up too much space. Also, there’s a larger prism display and a front light that turns on when the camera is in use, while the power button has been moved from the inside to the back of the device.
Earlier reports suggest that the new Enterprise Glass will feature a faster processor, improved battery performance and wireless connectivity.However, the main improvements are under the hood. Earlier reports suggest that the new Enterprise Glass will feature a faster processor (Intel Atom), improved battery performance and wireless connectivity with 5 GHz Wi-Fi, along with better heat management and performance.
The Google Glass Enterprise Edition will only be available to Glass for Work companies and is not slated to be available to the general public. Before shipping to the end users, these companies will preload their own software to deliver solutions for certain verticals they target. Healthcare will undoubtedly play a major role in the Glass future.
Here are few of the Glass Enterprise Edition images from the FCC’s website.
