Snapchat released Spectacles Version 2 with improved features over the original one
Snapchat, image sharing social app launched three new versions of wearable camera spectacles. The new versions of the firm’s Specs offer a number of smaller upgrades over the originals. The spectacles are available in three new colors – onyx, ruby, and sapphire and user can choose between two lens shades for each of the colors. Snapchat Spectacles Version 2 is water resistant, which allows user to click pictures and record HD videos in shallow water.
According to the company, the device supports recording up to 30 second snap captured on the version 2 specs will be recorded in HD (1216 x 1216) by default, with no standard resolution option (which is default on version 1). Version 2 Snapchat Specs can also snap pictures too, at 1642 x 1642 (which is around 2.7MP). The pictures are unlikely to be bursting with detail then, but for the odd snap here and there it should suffice.
The device provides wide memory where user can store up to 150 videos or 3,000 photos at a time. Furthermore, snapchat introduced dual microphones in the new specs, providing better audio capture too. The Spectacles are available now in the US, UK, Canada, and France and the new wearable will go on sale in Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Spain and Italy on May 3. Snapchat Spectacles price are priced at £149.99, which includes the charging case and cable.
