Google Glass 2 – When It Will be Released In The UK?

Google Glass 2

The successor of the Google Glass might be a total surprise for the smartglass fans, because, in the meantime, the giant manufacturer has been working on other wearable projects and the upcoming device could come with a different design and unbelievable specs. Until now, we’ve heard only rumors about the existence of the Google Glass 2 and Google has announced on 16 January that its Explorer program will be closed, but the company didn’t say anything about giving up on its Google Glass dream. So, now that we’re approaching the end of 2015, we’re waiting to see if the second generation smartglass will be released next year.

The first Google Glass, which was part of the Explorer Program, came with an exorbitant price of $1500 and the device was released back in 2012, at the Google I/O event. The smartglass wasn’t received with arms wide open because the gadget lovers weren’t ready for this type of technology, they didn’t understand how it works or they didn’t need it.

Google hasn’t mentioned anything about the Google Glass 2 at the I/O 2014, but in January this year we’ve heard the announcement that the Explorer Program will be closed, leaving a door open for interpretations. We were hoping to see the Glass 2 revealed at this year’s developer event, but that didn’t happen, although during this year, Google has posted over 20 job listings for the Glass division.

Anyway, according to the latest rumors, the smartglass will still come next year at a more affordable price of around £1000 and it will be powered by an Intel processor which will improve the battery life. Also, the next device will have a new button-and-hinge design which will allow the users to attach it to other glasses and this feature will be loved by the business users who wear glasses at work. Also, the viewing experience will be improved and the smartglass will be available in two models: one with a screen for the enterprises, while the other will be a sport version which won’t rely on audio.
