Google Glasses Are Back But They Only Have A Limited Life
Google has not given up on intelligent glasses with pre-production models now being circulated for comment, the downside is that their latest specs only deliver 30 minutes of battery life.
According to sources Alphabet the owners of Google have placed orders with Taiwanese Company Pegatron to supply third-generation Google Glasses featuring a design that is lighter than previous models which were disbanded due to poor consumer and business response.
The new third-generation Google Glass is reportedly the same weight as prior models buy will only last 30 minutes before a recharge is needed due to a new battery design.
The Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 features an 820mAh battery, up from the previous-generation’s 780mAh battery, but the third-generation Google Glass’s battery reportedly needs recharging after 30 minutes of use, sources claimed.
According to DigiTimes, the Google Glass product line was supplied by Quanta Computer in the past.
Quanta and Pegatron both declined to comment on matters concerning clients or orders.
Google began selling its first-generation Google Glass in 2013 and ended the sales of the device in 2015.
In 2017, Google moved to target the enterprise sector and announced the upgraded Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 at the end of May 2019.
