Google Glass Wakeboarding Dmitry Fedotov

Google Glass 2 filed with FCC

Google Glass, despite harsh criticism, was a great gadget for me: being able to film in direction of driving and see incoming messages/navigate/make quick photo shots still motivate me to charge it up and use at least once a month. I would, however, admit Google Glass 1 was not a hit with average users: for once the price tag of US$ 1’500 was not justified. It’s cyborg-like look did not help either… While elsewhere public perception was overall curious, in the Silicon Valley it was straight-up hateful.

It appears, however, Google finally decided to stage a comeback for this gadget: recent FCC filing shows an updated device design

… along with few enhancements: according to Geekbench, Google Glass Edition 2 is switching to a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor running Android 8.1 Oreo. The Glass will run at 1.2GHz and include 3GB of RAM (only 1GB Upgrade is not exactly a dealbreaker, ladies). Along with benchmarked single and multi-cores of 1164 and 2424.
