Alphabet's X moonshot factory has been working on the 2nd generation of the Glass Enterprise Edition for the past 2 years. Today, the team is joining Google, launching the new Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2.
The team's new Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 comes at $ 999 and is strictly meant for enterprise customers. Much like Microsoft's HoloLens, Google is not making it for regular consumers and it's more fit for work.
The new Glass runs on Android and comes with Android Mobile Device Management support, which makes it easier to work with Glass 2 devices. And since it's based on Android, companies want to be able to integrate their services much faster than before.
On the surface, the new Glass device does not look much different from the original Enterprise Edition. Qualcomm's Snapdragon XR1 platform is now ready to go. The new device packs a "significantly more powerful" multi-core CPU, as well as an integrated AI engine, that allows for power savings, improved performance, support for computer vision, and advanced machine learning capabilities.
Glass 2 features improved camera performance and quality as well as a USB port with fast charging support. The device also comes with an overall battery life, according to Google.
Google is so partnering with smith optics to make compatible safety frames for different types of work environments that work with the new glass 2.
Enterprise customers want to buy the new Glass Enterprise Edition 2 from Google directly.
