Consumers have lost interest in Google’s Glass as of late and Google is trying to change that by adding an Intel Chip to their Glass. According to a new report the next generation of Google’s Glass will be Google Glass with Intel chip. The new product is due out next year and it will change the current processors made by Texas Instruments. Google is hoping to revive its Glass and more attract new customers.
Besides being very expensive, another aspect of why people chose not to buy Google Glass is its battery life. Its short battery life, to be more accurate. The battery on the old Google Glass lasts at most a day. Earlier updates helped boost the RAM and extend the battery life, but the changes were barely noticeable.
No one knows what Intel chip Google will use on its new Glass device but there are some speculations around it. The upcoming Google Glass with Intel chip is said to feature an ARM processor used by Intel for the MICA wearable device, which was announced a couple of months ago. The ARM processor will supposedly extend Glass’s battery life to two days. Another rumored processor models that could be used on the Google Glass with Intel chip is Quark, an Intel x86 chip that is used on wearable devices and other low-power Internet of Things devices.
No one really knows for sure which chip Google will choose to add on its Glass but both will make the device’s battery last longer than it currently does.
Sources say that Intel will not only provide the new chip for Google Glass, it will also help with its promotion. Intel known that Google Glass has potential, it’s just that it had some bad luck reaching the proper customers.
Intel will promote Google Glass within a program called Glass at Work, which will include a number of partners working in different fields and develop vertical applications for logistics, healthcare, sports industries and manufacturing.
Intel said about the new Google Glass with Intel chip, that:
“Intel and Google have a strong relationship and work closely together across a number of different areas but we aren’t going to comment on speculation.”
