Latest Version of Google Glass Hits FCC Filing with High-Resolution Images

Latest version of Google’s Glass Explorer program recently published in FCC provides detailed description of the Google Glass with high resolution images of the device. The images show a Google Glass unit with the FCCID ‘A4R­-GG1’ that looks a lot like the existing Glass design. The interesting feature for the new Google Glass is that it can fold up, just like a regular pair of glasses, making it much easier to store when not in use.

In addition to the above feature, the glass prism looks longer than the first version of the device, which presumably offers a larger picture. In general, the case looks smoother and rounder than the previous version of Google Glass. There is a set of pogo pins with large circles on either side of the contacts. It is expected that the circles are magnets to hold the charger cable on, which would make this charging port a lot like Apple's MagSafe connector.

Some pictures show that the unit is packed with hardware. While we can see a speaker internally in the device, the bone conduction pad is gone from the case. There is a slot right below the speaker, which makes it look like Glass has changed to a more conventional speaker. According to reports from Wall Street Journal and 9to5Google published earlier this year, the new wearable includes a larger prism display (presumably for a larger field of view), an improved Intel processor, longer battery life, and a more rugged, even waterproof design.

A short user manual has even been posted by the FCC, according to which the power button is now ‘on the back of the device’. The manual also describes the camera light on the front of the device, which will turn green when the camera is on. This might help Glass gain a little more acceptance in public. Another new feature of the Google Glass is now supports 5GHz Wi-Fi. It has been reported that the latest version of the Google Glass is the ‘Enterprise Edition’ and will be aimed at businesses. Interested users can get the device through the ‘Glass for Work’ program, and businesses will be expected to load custom software on the device.
