Snap is apparently working on new versions of its Spectacles portable camera, according to an Alex Heath report on Cheddar this morning.
The company is said to be working on two new Spectacles products: a second-generation model that offers bug fixes, performance improvements and new colors, and a more ambitious version that could feature two lenses and more advanced camera technology that could Cost up to $ 300.
It is said that two new Spectacles products are in process
Snap apparently is also in talks with major eyewear companies, including Luxottica and Warby Parker, to license their camera technology. As part of the ambitions of the company's expanding camera, Heath also reported that Snap quietly acquired the FiveFocal image company late last year.
The second generation version of Spectacles is apparently quite advanced; it is already said that the product is in the manufacturing stages for a launch of Q2 or Q3. Since Snapchat infamously suffered a massive $ 40 million loss in the first generation of Spectacles, only selling around 150,000 units, the company is expected to produce far fewer units for the new generation of hardware.
