Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, is working on a new version of its Spectacles glasses, and they’ll be “quite different” from the first version, according to a report this week from TechCrunch.
Citing an anonymous source, the report suggests the new version could include more augmented reality features, which overlay digital images onto what you’re already seeing in the real world. Right now the $130 glasses are more for shooting photos and videos and uploading them to Snapchat.
Snapchat, with its filters and lenses, pioneered much of how people use AR on their phones today. Since then, augmented reality has become a major battleground for tech giants including Google, Apple and Facebook.
Facebook, in fact, has said it’s working on its own augmented reality glasses, though they’ll.
Snapchat didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
