Snapchat launches new version of Spectacles smart glasses | Social networks

Snapchat launched on Thursday (26) another version of the connected spectacles Spectacles. The highlight is the transfer rate to the smartphone, four times faster than the first model. The device also allows you to capture photos and videos in high definition, with more details. Like the first generation, the accessory records images and records clips of up to 30 seconds on a single button on the left side of the lens. In addition, it protects your eyes from ultraviolet sunlight.

The intention of the novelty is to bring back users who are less active or who abandon the social network, since the debut of the glasses did not have the expected result. The product's differential lies in the absence of hands during use. It has the capacity to store up to 150 videos or 3,000 photos, before starting the transfer to Snapchat.

Images and videos are recorded in high resolution. The photos are 1642 x 1642 pixels, while the videos had a 25% improvement in the display, compared to the previous model, with 1216 x 1216 pixels. A microphone has also been added to the new version of Spectacles. According to the company, one battery charge of the glasses is enough to record about 70 video snaps and send them to the cell phone.

Snapchat ensures that the new Spectacles are water resistant. That is, they can be used by the pool or on rainy days. According to the social network, it is also possible to take photos and record videos in shallow places. However, this does not mean that the wearable device is waterproof.

Smart glasses are available in three frame colors: Sapphire (blue), Onyx (black) and Ruby (red). The user can also choose between two shades of lenses: Daybreak, with more transparency or Sunset, with solid colors.

There is still no forecast of arrival in Brazil. For now, the new Spectacles glasses are on sale in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and France for U $ 149.99 (R $ 524.53 in direct conversion). From May 3, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and six other European countries will be able to buy the device.
