While we already had strong indications to the nascent development stages of the next iteration of Google Glass, a new clue headed our way today suggests that the Enterprise Edition of the new Google Glass will feature a larger prism display, a higher performance Intel Atom processor and moderately improved battery life.
After a couple of failures and earning few implausible titles, Google thinks that the technology they once fabricated to Google Glass can still change lives at consumer level and, in fact, is making attempts to rejuvenate it under the guidance of Tony Fadell, who received command over his new post earlier this year.
Google is calling its next version of Google Glass, the “Enterprise Edition”, meaning Google will push this first to the enterprise market. Google, as per sources, is adding great many things to the new iteration of Glass.
Firstly, Glass will feature a brand new prism display, which is intended to reduce the eye strain to some extent that was experienced on its predecessor when any one chose to spend some extra time with the headset. By extending the prism width, the user simply has to look up to view the display, rather than looking up and to the right, which should reduce the effort required to view the display.
The next one in the Glass’s list of upgrades is the replacement of the processor powering up the device. Google is said to have opted for a new low-energy Intel Atom processor to power the Enterprise Edition, which will improve heat management and performance up to a great extent.
Battery life was one of the biggest concerns for workplace applications with the Explorer Edition and definitely aggregated to the factors for its failure. Google seems to be well concerned about that and have made some manual tweaks to elongate battery life to some extent. Also, a new low power processor will add up some extra breaths to the battery life of the device.
Earlier this week, Droid Life had spotted a solid evidence in form of a submission to FCC that proves that Google is actively testing its next iteration for a launch. A suspected device filed under FCC ID A4R-GG1 — is reportedly carrying all the wireless connectivity you’d expect from a next-gen wearable.
