The FCC has approved the Google Glass 2 Enterprise Edition, and a launch is imminent

 

According to a recent FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing, Google Glass 2 Enterprise Edition is in development. The specifications are anticipated to be available sometime in 2019.

Google Glass, which was publicly shown in April 2012, was an ultimately futile attempt to provide us with smarter spectacles. The majority of us had great hopes, but after a few months, our enthusiasm waned.

The company followed this up the following year with Glass Enterprise Edition, a similar product with a business-focused focus. Google described it at the time as “a new chapter” for the gadget. These did fare better. Although it’s challenging to gauge their uptake precisely, some of their clients include DHL, Volkswagen, Samsung, and General Electric.

Currently under development is a second-generation Enterprise model. According to MySmartPrice, it has already received an FCC certification.

Glass 2 Enterprise Edition will be supported by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but 4G will not be an option. Little else is known about the FCC listing, but a source familiar with the situation told 9to5Google that performance and other essential features will be improved. Additionally, it is anticipated that the specifications will include a higher quality camera module and better battery life. We’ll see them in 2019, according to 9to5Google.

The design of the upcoming Enterprise Edition is essentially unaltered. The glasses include a button-and-hinge mechanism and a similar set-up for power buttons as the previous iteration.

At least temporarily, Google appears to have given up on consumer-grade glasses. However, it is obvious that they believe the company idea has a future.

It’s fair to argue that the idea of smart glasses hasn’t really taken off yet. The category, however, is in need of a boost, and so they are currently being repositioned to seem more like standard glasses. Even Apple is allegedly experimenting in this field.
