Snapchat Doubles Down On Spectacles; Introduces Several Upgrades

Snap Spectacles

And as the hype grew, so did the number of Spectacles Snap had manufactured.

Spectacles are available exclusively at Spectacles.com and cost £149.99. The glasses can record video at 1216 by 1216 pixels at 60 frames per second with a touch of a button on the left side.

The first version of the Spectacles flopped, and the company had to take a $40 million write down.

The sunglasses allow users to record photos, video and audio that can then be transferred to Snapchat for messages to friends.

There's a wireless video camera embedded inside the glasses. The transfer speed between the Spectacles and a user's phone are now also three to four times faster. Similarly, the included charging case is 20 percent smaller.

As for the specs of the glasses, not much has changed. If they have the potential to be something more than a dead-end, they should keep the brand alive in a lower-priced existence while forgetting about incremental upgrades and focusing on a more exciting (and expensive) future for smart glasses. Press and hold to take a photo.

Denver Broncos select Bradley Chubb at No. 5
He won the Bronko Nagurski Award as the nation's best defender, and the Hendricks Award as the nation's best defensive end. Defensive end Mario Williams, the top pick in the 2006 draft, was the first in a trio of N.C.

If you require prescription lenses, Snap is working with Lensabyl to address those needs. Spectacles are now more comfortable to wear with a smaller profile, and they're water resistant - so you can bring them to the beach, or your next pool party! Videos see a resolution bump of 25% to 1216 x 1216 and photos are captured at 1642 x 1642.

As Digital Trends reports, Spiegel stated in his interview for the Wired magazine that Spectacles were developed separately from the Snapchat app, but that there is the intention, in the future, to pair these two products.

Snap When can I get them? While there's no advertised IPX rating, Snap does say "You can use our latest Spectacles (Onyx, Ruby, Sapphire) in shallow water!" The first generation had been available online and in "Minion"-esque vending machines in major cities".

Other countries will be able to order Spectacles from the website starting May 3.

Parts of the old models will be recycled into the new glasses, according to The Verge, which should make those investors who are wondering what the company is doing with its warehouse of unsold pairs a little happy.
