Snap Reportedly Working on New Pair of Smart Sunglasses

Word has it Snap is working on a new pair of connected sunglasses.

Cheddar on Friday reported that Snap aims to “launch a second version of its Spectacles glasses this year followed by a more ambitious third version equipped with two cameras in 2019.”

Spectacles 2.0 will reportedly be water resistant and come in some new colors; the current version is available in black, coral, and teal. The third generation, meanwhile, will offer “more ambitious” updates, including a new design.

“Snap has prototyped an aluminum design with more circular lens frames and two cameras that would allow for 3D-like depth effects in videos,” the report notes. “Snap has additionally considered including a built-in GPS and a leather case, as well as a potential price tag of around $300.”

That would be a huge price hike from the current version, which sells for $129.99.
