[News] Snapchat Spectacles V2: The HD Camera Sunglasses!

Hello Mi Fans!

We're astonished when Google introduced the innovative Google Glass. It’s been three years since Google killed its ambitious Glass project, and the smart glasses market hasn’t progressed much. The closest thing to a viable product was Intel’s Vaunt prototype, which projected a heads-up display on the lens and looked like actual glasses, but Intel shuttered the project last month due to a “disciplined approach” on bringing new products to market. After the introduction of the typical gadget, so many companies brought up their innovative glass displays but most of them didn't succeed! Snapchat released the next generation of Spectacles, its wearable camera, with new features for taking photos and water resistance. The sunglasses, which have the same striking form as the first-generation model, have been slimmed down and now come in three jewel tones: onyx (black), ruby (red), and sapphire (blue).


Capture the world as it unfolds around you with the Snapchat Spectacles V2 HD Camera Sunglasses. Offering more style options than before, these sunglasses are an intuitive extension of your eyesight. The built-in camera captures both photos and videos with a touch of a button. Because the camera is by your eyes, it captures exactly what you see. Tap once to record a video of 10 seconds and tap again to continue for videos up to 30 seconds. Or, you can tap and hold to snap a photo. The photos and videos come in a circle shape which allows you to choose the orientation when you want to share. And, you can instantly upload directly to Snapchat with a tap of the app. The Spectacles V2 are designed to go wherever your adventures take you.


Features of Spectacles:

  • It’s covered in splash-resistant fabric for holiday use.
  • The glasses can take 3,000 photos per charge or up to 150 videos.
  • They’re waterproof and offer up to 70 videos on a single charge.
  • Spectacles is now fit more easily in a pants pocket

Check out Spectacles:

Snap did learn that users wanted to take photos, get them in less flashy coral colors, bring Spectacles to the beach, pair them quicker with better resolution exports and hear less wind noise when moving. And most importantly, they wanted something they didn’t feel weird wearing. So Randall’s team essentially scrapped the yellow warning ring, style, architecture, chipset and electronics to build a better V2 from the ground up. The result rises high above its predecessor.


There are a handful of other improvements as well. You can now take photos as well as videos — tap the top button to take a 10-second video, or press and hold for a second to snap a photo. (You can also tap two or three times to create a 20- or 30-second video.) Both photos and videos are now in high definition, and there’s no standard-definition mode any more. Photo resolution is 1642 x 1642, and video resolution has been improved 25 percent to 1216 x 1216.

Snap added a second microphone to the camera to help make conversations captured through the glasses easier to understand. (In the original version, you could hear the person wearing the glasses but sometimes not the other person in the shot.) Battery life is about the same, despite the decreased size. Snap says you can shoot about 70 video snaps using Spectacles, and transfer them to your phone, on a single charge. The charging case can recharge the glasses up to four times before it needs to be recharged as well.
So what do you guys think about Spectacles V2, the funky smart glasses? Will it be a Google Glass killer?
