The original Google Glass was discontinued by Google last year before it even made it to the Indian market.
Latest reports, however, indicate that Google is all set to release the second version of its wearable gadget Google Glass.
Google filed documents with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a product that was neither a smartphone, a tablet or a computing device. The listing was labeled “BLUETOOTH & DTS/UNII a/b/g/n/ac” with model name “GG1.”
The tech world was quick to speculate that “GG1” is an abbreviation for Google Glass 1.
The listing also indicates that the device is equipped with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, which is similar to its first version.
The first version of the Google Glass allowed scrolling through social media feeds, watching videos, capturing images, etc.
The device faced privacy concerns as it could discreetly record video and capture images.
The first Google Glass was exorbitantly priced at $1500, hence, was not accessible to all. Google has been working on a second version for sometime now.
If the reports prove to be true, the next version of Google Glass might launch some time later this year.
