Snap is working on two new versions of its Spectacles camera-enabled glasses, according to a Friday report from business news site Cheddar. While Snap was bullish on the potential of Spectacles when the product first arrived, consumer interest in the gadget cooled significantly over the next few months. After the huge disaster that was the company's Spectacles glasses-only selling 150,00 pairs with hundreds of unsold units-the company is apparently returning with two new Spectacles. It's apparently planning to build slight improvements into the next new version, meant to ship this fall, per Cheddar, with new colors, water resistance, and performance improvements. But the other new Spectacles camera, set for a 2019 launch, will feature more ambitious upgrades.
Also, if Snap is serious about being a camera company, it won't give up after one middling attempt. That line could possess snazzy features like multiple cameras and a build-in Global Positioning System as well as an increased price tag of around $300. The new design features aluminium frames, and Snap is also considering adding built-in GPS-possibly for Snap Map-and a leather case with the new product.
