Snapchat Spectacles 2: Price, Features, How To Order

Snap Spectacles

Snap Spectacles

According to Snap, owners of the first version of Spectacles will soon receive a firmware update which will also allow them to take photographs with their glasses.

Snapchat parent company Snap is giving the Spectacles experiment another go.

Similarly, the Google Glass smart spectacles, launched in 2013, famously earned its wearers the sobriquet "Glasshole", and the company eventually stopped producing the device in 2015.

Snap also made some notable improvements to the hardware, with Snaps transferring to Snapchat up for four times faster than they did on the original Spectacles, and a second microphone to capture the voice of the person wearing the glasses.

It's interesting that Snap has decided, once again, to introduce their spectacles. They also supposed to boast better audio and the ability to take a photograph with the tap of a button. An overabundance of inventory caused the company to write down almost $40 million in the third quarter.

Long back in 2016 Snapchat has released its new gadget called as Spectacles in the market, but unfortunately, the brand has only sold 2,20,000 pairs. As before, the glasses charge through their carry case. You'll be able to choose between Onyx, Ruby, and Sapphire, with two different lens options for colour as well.

The biggest new feature for this year's Spectacles, though, is the inclusion of water resistance. There's 4GB of storage on board letting you store up to 150 videos or 3,000 photos.

The tweaks are a small change compared to the overall redesign, but its a big step for the company considering how adamant they were on not changing the new design.

Snap Inc. (NYSE:SNAP), a Technology sector firm, traded 46.67 Million shares in last trading session and stock shed -6.97% with closing price of $14.54 per share. They are water resistant down to one meter for 30 minutes, and can capture up to 70 videos on a single charge. For the first time, through a partnership with Lensabl users can order Spectacles with prescription lenses.
