Two New Versions of Snapchat Spectacles Coming this Fall

The first-generation Snapchat Spectacles failed to become a breakout product beyond its initial hype

According to a report from Cheddar, Snap is planning two new versions of the product, the first of which is slated to arrive this year.

Snap's Spectacles set out to be the best thing since sliced bread and was pretty much the furthest thing from that...

The current Snap Spectacles record 10-second videos with a tap, which can then be uploaded to your Snapchat story.

According to internal data from Snap, less than half of Spectacles owners continued to use the camera-equipped sunglasses after just four weeks of owning them.

Snap hasn't confirmed any of the details of the report.

It's unclear what Snap is changing about its Spectacles project to make it more enticing this time around, and it's not clear if such a project will ever see the light of day. The company had released the Specs to certain markets only, however in the previous year, i.e. 2017, the giant has made the specs available to more markets around the world.

In addition to working on two versions for Spectacles, they company is also in conversations with major glasses companies including Luxottica and Warby Parker to license out its camera technology.

Also, if Snap is serious about being a camera company, it won't give up after one middling attempt.

Since we don't have any official information regarding the new versions of spectacles, we are unable to describe anything on its launch date or pricing.
