- Google Glass 2: slight performance boost and USB-C port
Almost two years after the Google Glass Enterprise Edition, the Google Glass 2 could finally be launched very soon. After FCC certification at the end of 2018, first images of these new augmented reality glasses are on the run on the web.
These images, obtained by the Brazilian website Tecnoblog, provide an overview of the product. We first discover that the magnetic connector has been replaced by a USB Type-C. Connection with other devices should therefore be facilitated.

At the same time, according to a Geekbench benchmark, these new AR glasses will be equipped with a Snapdragon 710 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, an integrated LTE (4G) modem, and compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 802.11ac.
They will run under the Android Oreo OS. A 32MP camera will shoot 4K videos at 30 FPS, and 1080p videos at 120 FPS. At the end of 2018, the FCC certification also unveiled a new mechanism for folding the device.
In comparison, the first Google Glass Enterprise shipped an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, a 780mAh battery and 32GB of storage space. This new model therefore brings an increase in technical characteristics, although this is clearly not a leap forward.
It remains to be seen whether this new product will be able to cope with the HoloLens 2 freshly unveiled by Microsoft, also intended for companies. We will have to wait to discover all the characteristics of Google Glass 2, and especially to be able to test it. Anyway, this leaked images foreshadows an imminent launch...
