Could this be the newest version of Google Glass?
Droid Life scrolled through an FCC list and discovered that Google has a new product in the pipeline under "FCC ID A4R-GG1." This could be the clue needed to eventually reveal that the tech company's next version of Google Glass is coming ... and that its name seemingly will be the GG1. The FFC filing leads some to also believe that the next version of the Google Glass could already be in preliminary testing stages.
Although it's essentially patchwork putting these clues together, facts show that the hardware isn't registered as a smartphone or tablet. Plus, it has an "802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE and a built-in rechargeable battery," attributes that reports link to the device being made to take around as we know the Google Glass to be.
More hints are that the product comes with an AC charger and USB cable, and Droid Life says that when the device is connected to a PC, it can provide a "path for charging and data transfer." While there was a belief that the FCC classification could be for the new Chromecast, which is expected for a third-quarter release, the rechargeable battery should end any thoughts of that being the case.
Back in April, the CEO of Luxottica, the Italian eyewear maker, told the Wall Street Journal that it was working on the new edition of the Google Glass and that it would be available soon.
Well, the word "soon" can be vague sometimes, but Google's next product is one step closer.
