When Google started working on its Glass augmented reality wearable project, its goal was to release it as a commercial product available for everyone. But due to various factors like privacy and not-so-friendly design, it had to launch it in a repackaged version aimed at enterprise users and named Glass Enterprise Edition. Now, it seems like Google is all set to announce its successor packed with internal upgrades.
As first spotted by MySmartPrice, Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 has been seen on the benchmark website Geekbench. The listing shows that it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. It is a huge upgrade as previous editions featured Intel Atom chipsets. It means the users of this upcoming glass wearable can expect a significant boost in the performance. It is an octa-core processor that will run at 1.3GHz when used with the device.
It is also listed to feature 3GB of RAM which is an upgrade over 2GB RAM available with the previous version. The listing shows that the newest edition managed to score 1164 and 2424 in single-core and multi-core benchmark tests respectively. This is pretty much is what has been revealed by the Geekbench listing so far.
There is no information on when exactly Google will release the Glass Enterprise Edition 2. But with this listing and the processor choice, it is clear that we can expect to see some significant internal improvements with the newer version. We will keep you updated as more information will appear.
