Google Glass Enterprise Edition details leak out
Google introduced the Glass Explorer Edition smart glasses back in mid-April 2013, but only made the prototype available to a limited amount of people. The public got access to it the following year, in mid-May. In early 2015, Google announced they would halt production of the prototype and that Project Glass was ready to leave the experimental stage behind. Now, it looks like a product allegedly named Google Glass Explorer Edition is close to being revealed.
This week, industry insiders who spoke to 9to5Google uncovered some of the technical details of the upcoming product. Compared to its predecessor, the Enterprise Edition addresses the eye strain problems of the Explorer Edition by using a larger prism display that extends further, although details on the actual resolution are still unknown. In addition to the improved display, the new Google Glass Enterprise Edition will pack a more powerful Intel Atom processor, an upgrade that also ensures improved battery life.
According to the same source mentioned above, a device known as A4R-GG1 has been spotted on the FCC website last week and this might be the Google Glass Enterprise Edition. Unfortunately, the FCC listing does not reveal too many details, only mentioning that A4R-GG1 is a Bluetooth device with dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac support. If these rumors turn out to be true, the new Google Glass product should hit the market in the months to come, but this remains to be seen.
