It seems that the US tech giant Google has some good news under the hood. People who could not lay their hands on the wearable technology of Google Glass can now rejoice as Droid Life reports that the company is planning to bring an advanced version of Google Glass very soon. Though the withdrawal of the Google Glass from the market in January 2015 disappointed many, now it seems the company might be planning something even better this time.
GG1 is on the way
According to the reports, the next version of Google Glass is expected to be named as GG1 and would work as per the latest filing of the US Federal Communications Commission or FCC. The FFC is responsible for electronic product testing for ensuring that it follows the safety standards needed before allowing human contact.
The reports also indicate that the new product would be available in rectangular shape like any glass or spectacle, so that people can wear it comfortably. Not just that, to ensure user-friendliness, the device would offer sub-menu with left and right scrolling options. Though the media reports have given rise to a strong speculation regarding the launch of an all new Google Glass, a word of confirmation is still awaited from the company.
Tech giant Sony is rumored to be presently working towards the launch of the mini version of its latest flagship smartphone Xperia Z2, as FCC has already certified it. The mini version is likely to be available by the name of Xperia Z2 Compact, according to the reports.
The company had earlier launched the miniature version of its premium device, dubbed as the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, which was equipped with same specifications as the Xperia Z1 with a few subtle changes.
FCC has authorized the device with the model number Sony SO-04F “Altair”, which appears to be a NTT DoCoMo variant judging by the model number.
The upcoming device is expected to be available with a 4.5-inch display, and would be powered by the same Snapdragon 801 chipset. The smartphone is likely to have a 20MP camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The company has not yet released any official statement regarding the smartphone, but FCC listing hints that Sony will not take much time in releasing the mini version of Xperia Z2.
